Binding Toes in the Sand

My quilt frame is empty, I finished quilting Toes in the Sand on Monday night.

The binding is on.

I had to piece the backing. Not sure what happened. I needed five yards of fabric, I had only three (?). 

Luckily I had HEAPS of fabric left over. Probably enough to make a second quilt. 

So tonight I am stitching the binding down. Quilting this has been a great way to wind down of an evening. I have been madly trying to make lots of progress with the course I enrolled in last November. 

If I power stitch, I might have it finished by tomorrow night and have an OPAM finish for February. If not, it's coming on retreat with me Friday.


  1. love what is shown here... wonderful quilt almost done... happy stitchin'....

  2. Hi Raelee i love this,you are so very clever,fingers crossed for a finish tomorrow ,well done xx

  3. Fantastic, what a great quilt. Love the quilting detail on the coloured triangles. Hand quilting is great relaxation.....and sewing down the binding is too.

  4. The fabrics, piecing of the top and back, and the quilting are simply amazing! Congrats!
