Today I finished this quilt for a good friend who is having her first baby...just in time, as the shower is tomorrow!
This was my first time to do a stripe quilt like this. Has anyone else here done one of these? I would love any tips...I had trouble with my stripes stretching or something and the whole thing wasn't square when I was done. I cut all my selvages even on one end of each strip and then sewed them all together starting at the top and all starting at the same end. I think it might have been better to start in the middle and sew each one on from the opposite end. I had to do major trimming afterward to get the quilt top somewhat rectangular. Any thoughts??
I did the binding on this one by machine with a blanket stitch and really liked how that came out. It was much nicer looking then the zig-zag stitch. Not as nice as sewing it down by hand, but I was running out of time.
I think my machine stippling is getting better...overall, I was very pleased. I hope my friend likes it!!
Have a great weekend!
