Elissa's Quilt - Day 5

I'm in the home stretch of finishing this quilt. I finished quilting it yesterday and just need to finish up the binding, add a quilt tag, and wash and dry it. As you can see, I didn't use free motion quilting. I decided I just didn't have enough time to learn and practice free motion quilting on this gift, as I need to give it to its recipient tomorrow. I decided, however, that I would bind the quilt by hand, which isn't as hard or time consuming as I originally thought! To be honest though, I'm a little afraid I'm not doing it right. You all will be kind in case I'm not, right?

P.S. There's a sneak peek of another project I'm working on in the picture above. That project deserves its own (or several) post another day. Can you guess what it is?


  1. It looks like you're doing it right! I can't wait to see it finished!

  2. something 'leafy'? love the green bind. great job.
