Now I have quite a few quilted strips about an inch wide that can be made into bookmarks, cuffs, or something else. I will not throw away all that quilting!
I chose a blue for the binding, which blends nicely with the blues in the star points, and is the Carolina Blue of my brother and sister-in-law's alma mater.The binding is about two-thirds hemmed down by hand to the backing. I got a lot of it done during the Super Bowl.
I also almost finished quilting my secret class project. I used both the longarm and my new Janome 6600 for the quilting. On to the embellishing phase next- my favorite!
