Hello! I finished the binding on my first big Christmas quilt for this year just before leaving for market. I have to say this is already a favorite. I think I’m going to wash it right away so it’s ready for use this holiday season!
I love the fact that you can make this quilt with one Layer Cake and some additional fabric for sashing, outer triangles, border, and binding. I was determined to use fabrics from my stash for those and was successful (although i had purchased the setting triangle fabric not too long before deciding on this project).
I think one of the darker greens from the quilt or even from another Sweetwater collection would have made the perfect binding…but I was going for using what I had on hand and so used the backing fabric for my binding. I still like it…but I think I would have liked a darker green better.
The all-over quilting was done by my friend Kaitlyn using the Garden Gate pattern. I actually picked this pattern and am super happy with how it looks on this quilt!
