Which Way finished

Yesterday I finished the hand quilting and binding on the "Which Way?" quilt. For the binding I chose a grey fabric with a white polka dot pattern because I thought the rest of the quilt is colorful enough.

 
If you are new to this blog: welcome, it´s nice to have you here! :-) 
(Of course it´s nice to have my regular readers here, too!)
And if you are interested in the tutorial for this little quilt, you can find it here.

 For the binding I used a new to me technique. First I sewed it onto the front as usual. Then I turned and pressed it to the back. and using a fancy machine stitch sewed it in place from the front.
 The back looks like this:
 Not bad, I think. And very much more quick than hand sewing it to the back. I don´t know if I would do it on a heirloom bed quilt, but for me it´s okay with this little wall hanging.

Now the quilt hangs in a little corner of our living room.

PS: I am now at 291 followers and I will do a little giveaway when I reach 300! ;-)

Delightful ... love your happy colors. I also love the way the quilting shows up in the light as it hangs on the wall. Well done!

What a great wall hanging, such a great pattern and fun colours. I've been playing around with machine binding too. It's so much faster and with a bonus of using some of those stitches I never use.

Steffi - LOVE your quilt! And the little doll house is adorable! I sew my binding to the BACK of the quilt and fold it to the front - then stitch it down with a decorative stitch - that way the back is already attached and you can make the front look pretty - ;))
