The only sewing I managed to squeeze into the last seven days was to make the binding for the Indian Summer quilt. This was a quilt top pieced last fall, but just picked up from the long arm quilter (Joan Read) last week. The Brown Stripe makes a terrific binding, and would be an excellent basic to add to your stash. I’ve made straight cut binding (as opposed to bias, which I know some people like to do esp. with stripes) and cut 2.25″ wide. It’s my favorite width for a medium to large size quilt. I’m looking forward to finally getting this one done!

Fabric is Indian Summer by Zoe Pearn for Riley Blake. There are still some fabric kits available in the shop, and Allison Harris’ Skipping Squares pattern can be purchased at Cluck Cluck Sew.

    Nice touch with the brown stripe binding. Two and quarter inches is my favorite width too. I’ve only discovered how nicely stripes work in the last year or so.
