I had some HST (half-square-triangle) blocks left over from my Batik YOT quilt so I made these 5 tabletoppers/wallhangings. I’m thinking they will make good gifts. I enjoyed doing the walking foot quilting on 4 of the 5. I also tried my hand at feathers on the 5th one. I’m quite pleased with myself. Good practice pieces as the sizes are reasonable. I actually was sad when I finished them and didn’t have another quilting project to start on.
I did machine binding on all 5 pieces. I think it looks good. One I did upside down by mistake. I’ll give that one to a non-quilter and they’ll never know the difference.
I still prefer hand binding but when time is limited or the product doesn’t require it – I think machine binding is good enough. I used the tutorial from 52 Quilts HERE. Love it. The only thing is that it is a wider binding on the front – which with these projects wasn’t a big deal. However, if you have points on the outside that you don’t want to lose – it wouldn’t work.
Five more in the ‘finish’ column. Go Fluffy!
