The binding's on!

Getting things finished is always a problem, but I got the binding done on this quilt today, just have to stitch the sleeve on and label it!
The binding was all done by machine, stitched to the back of the quilt and then turned to the front and stitched along the fold to secure it. I used five similar jelly roll strips but trimmed them to 2" and joined on the bias. Nice and quick and perfectly adequate as I am not planning to enter it into any competitions.

This is my Serpentine Curves quilt which I have shown before. It has been quilted with a raindrops pattern designed and quilted by Mandy Parks.
It will be my sample for the class I am teaching in September.

Here are pictures of my two quilts that live in the villa in Spain. (Two more to add to the tally..)

 This one is a bordered four-patch and can be made with jelly-roll strips.

It is quilted with an all-over pattern of dragonflies.

The second is a rail fence and quilted with a pattern of sailing boats, both done by Judith Fells. They finish to about 52" square.
It was so hot in Spain that we had them on the bed with just a sheet and dispensed with the duvet!
