Quilting with Sandi


X Step Five

After borders have been added and quilting is complete, trim the excess backing and batting, being careful to keep edges straight and corners square. Select fabric for binding; cut strips 2 1/2″ wide and join to make a long strip. Apply binding. Add a sleeve for hanging your quilt if you wish to display it on the wall.

Add a label to your quilt: your name, name of the pattern, date completed, etc. And enjoy your quilt!!

The photos on the right show the Bookcase quilt almost complete–getting ready to cut away the excess batting & backing and apply the binding. The two smaller pictures show the detail of the gray cat and black cat, which were appliqued in place.
