I finished up the binding last night on the green and cream snowball quilt. I am amazed at how quickly I can get a binding done with the Olympics on. With one eye glued to the women's half pipe, and the other on my sewing, I was able to complete it in about an hour and a half. I love how it turned out, and when Scott held it up for my to see from a distance, I knew I should keep it. Isn't it funny how just a bit of quilting and a binding can change the entire look and feel of a quilt:? I guess that is the entire point of quilting... ah ha!
On a side note... I love that pieceing a backing together is now acceptable and some would say the "in" thing to do. I think it makes perfect sense to take larger pieces and put them together. No sense in spending more money to purchase enough fabric for the backing.
