I even finished the binding with my machine. I still need some practicing but I loved that it only took me a couple of hours instead of days. I used a great tutorial video by Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara.You can see that I also broke out of my comfort zone on the quilting and quilted large free motion flowers instead of stippling. I love the affect it has on the back of the quilt. I will definately be using this one again.
