Linus Quilt. Streak of Sunshine
I've NEVER had problems with binding, that is, the sewing the two ends together, and had no qualms about trying a new method -- the one where you overlap the two ends, the same about as the width of your binding -- LOL -- a slight mistake -- I twisted it, but I DID like the method.
Next time I will quilt it in the ditch, or diagonally. I did swirly balloons, (one circle inside another) and am not thrilled but... it's done.
This "Streak of Sunshine" from quiltville.com, is simple, quick, and effective. I've had that purple quilt-y fabric for years -- LOVED it, but could never think of how to use it.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, that backing! Looks like 60ish fabric, doesn't it?
