Final stages and finishing ‘Simple Life’ Quilt

Pinning double edge binding on with
Quilting Pins by Clover

I cut this binding at 3″ & stitched a seam allowance using the edge of the walking foot.

The binding is pressed raw edges together before pinning onto the right side of the quilt. I usually join enough strips together to fit all around the quilt, so folding it round the corner finished at 45 degrees is neat.
This photo shows the binding on the last stage, bringing the folded edge over to the back & then machining.

Finished Quilt!
I used minkee at the top on the back of the quilt for extra comfort.

The appliquéd bunting is also done with Minky, it’s great because it doesn’t fray!

The label ..!

      Hi Heather, thank you. Minky is the cuddly soft fabric.. It comes 60″ wide so makes ideal backing & no real need for wadding. It’s also great for appliqué as it doesn’t fray. Here’s the link to my web site. Fat 1/4’s are big.. For £5. Although I do have relatives in Manchester .. Sorry I’m staying here in the south 😦 🙂 !!
