The Plain Spoken is finished!
I am really surprised at how much I like the polka-dot binding. This is the first time I have made the binding cut from selvedge to selvedge. I usually make bias-binding. This was so much easier! I used this binding-tutorial, and it was so much easier than the bias...and it looks really good too! I cut my bindingstrips 5 cm (~1½").
And here you can see the backing, I still cannot believe my luck in finding the fabric. It is a perfect match, and it was on sale!! It doesn't get much better than that! LOL.
the Modern Quilt workshop by Weeks Ringle and Bill Kerr.
Love that book!
Now I just have to convince myself to wait until Christmas to give it to them....
