Don’t Look At The Back

And that’s that. I finished this top just in time to go pick up my 7700. It was a side trip into a type of quilting I don’t expect to do often. I’ll finish it eventually but for now I’m happy that the top is done. The next couple of days will be quilting-light so it was nice finishing something before Monday night’s quilt guild meeting/my mom’s knee replacement surgery/etc.

Oh, and yes, I know none of the points match. The points don’t match because I offset all the rows by design. Don’t call the Quilt Police down on my. And speaking of the Quilt Police: you know that advice about not checking out the kitchen of a restaurant you like? Well, don’t look at the back of this quilt top, it’s terrible. It’s not up to my standards. Part of it was pieced during the class and I was in a hurry, I had the wrong foot on my machine etc. I’ve already posted about the issues I had with the dark grey fabric.

I bought the Janome Quilt Binder Set today. I got a real good deal on it but it was still not cheap. I justify the purchase because I HATE BINDING quilts. Yes, both binding by hand and by machine (slightly less by machine).

  1. Looks great, interesting to read about your experience sewing with the different types of fabrics. Don’t worry, I’m not the “Q-Police” and if you don’t want me to look at your backsides, then I won’t! From my experience working with binder attachments (and I’m not at all sure the Janome is the same as the BERNINA), it requires a lot of fooling-around with and adjusting with some scraps up front before you begin with your real project. Once you have everything adjusted and in-line, it (technically) should work great! Can’t wait to read about your binding experience – I haven’t tried using one to bind a quilt with yet. But then again, binding is one of my favorite parts of making a quilt!
