Friday Finish July 9

I finally got the Snowman quilt bound. I learned so much on this quilt; Shiva paint sticks, PPP on the long arm, the wonders of a glue stick and still PPP that invisible binding stitch.

Here’s the quilt:

The large snowflakes were all stenciled on the a Shiva paint stick and then heat set after drying. I just love what they add to the quilt.

Here’s some of the quilting:

Just having a long arm doesn’t make me a long arm quilter! I need lots more practice, practice and more practice – but I’m pretty pleased at how this one came out.

Here is the backing and binding:

I tried something new with the turned binding by using a glue stick to stick it down and then heat setting that with an iron. Wow, does that rock!! I was able to hand stitch the binding without pinning and that was so much easier. I used the Sewline Fabric Glue Pen that I picked up at Quilt in a Day Teacher Training (on a whim, because someone said ‘You have to try this” and Sue said “We only have this many” LOL! -I love that smaller tip – I should have tried this quilts ago 🙂

Now for a bath and Hubby’s Snowman quilt will be all his 😀
