It has been a very long time since I have made a 'traditional' quilt. In fact, this sofa quilt, made with a large variety of batiks, was started over two years ago and has been waiting patiently to be finished. I finally finished the last bit of work on it and got the binding sewn on last night. It's a gift, and I'm hoping they won't mind that it's 'slightly used'...the extra warmth provided by the cat hair is a bonus! Arbour decided she should help me with the binding, but as you can imagine it didn't make the hand sewing any easier!
You might notice in the close up that the two shorter edges of the flying geese (triangles for you non-quilters) are loose, creating little pockets of sorts. This adds some interesting extra texture to the quilt.
