Sunday Evening Binding

My Slow Stitch Sunday project will be adding the binding to my tea towel challenge quilt.  For the first time in a long time (years!), the binding will NOT be scrappy–just a simple black binding to frame the quilt.

Since I cannot share a colorful scrapping binding with you to mark the occasion, here's a view from the (plain muslin) back of the quilt--showing some of my very first FMQ stitches on the Singer 301 outlining all those leaves on tea tea towel  and the last of FMQ stitching as I added black stitching to trace the lines on the butterflies.

The Other Side

Don't judge the tension and quilter control problems too harshly ... I developed a lot of skill along the way.  There are some loose threads in this photo, too, that I didn't notice until I uploaded it :-)

In case you've missed my posts on this project, here's the tea towel I used as a start for this project.

Sophie's Tea Towel

I plan to share the finished quilt later this week.
