There was a mysterious box on my doorstep last week, a delivery by the post. Okay, maybe not so mysterious, because I knew it was from Angie of 5 Little Monkeys Quilting. The mystery, though, was how my Chain Linked Quilt had been quilted. We had talked about some ideas, in general, but I had left it up to her to surprise me in the end.
Elizabeth for a discount on quilting by Angie. Oh, happy day! Angie had quilted another quilt for me in the past, so I knew she did very nice work. I hastily put together a backing and sent it off to her for longarm quilting.
The binding is another one of those things that reflects my impatience. I started out thinking I'd hand sew it down on the back, so I deliberately took a more generous seam allowance when machine sewing it onto the front. But when I started to fold the binding over and put the binder clips on and stared at that long, long line of binding to be stitched down...well, impatience kicked in again and I decided to machine sew the binding down.
I still love it, with all its idiosyncrasies!
