This quilt top has been finished for a couple of months, but I finally got around to quilting and binding it. I made it for the Fat Quarterly quilt along. It's a really easy way to put a jelly roll to good use.
I had some yardage of the Sunshine print for the backing, but I didn't have quite enough. I added some strips of Kona solids to make it work.
I used this tutorial on the Fat Quarterly blog for quilting. Basically, you set your machine to do a giant zig-zag stitch. I think it's a cool effect, and it's really simple.
I used Kona Chinese Red for the binding. When I ran out of that, I switched to Sunshine.
I have to admit that I've lost my ability to make a decent mitered corner. I used to be pretty good at it, but things have really gone off the rails lately. Anyone have a foolproof tip?
