Complete

THE Hundred Patch quilt is complete.  Binding it has been the focus of my last few days.

Some people don’t like binding, but it might be my favorite part.  Why?  Because until the binding is done, all you have is fabric, batting and thread.  Once the binding is complete, you truly have a quilt.

More pictures and a full story coming soon, but I wanted to share this much so you can celebrate with me.

  1. Very pretty! And I absolutely agree with you about the binding…it’s the frame around a beautiful piece of art.

  2. I love that quilt. I’ve always been a sucker for REAL scrap quilts. And I agree with you about binding, it’s one of my favorite parts. I don’t like making binding, but I love putting it on, there’s a real sense of satisfaction and completion in that process.

  3. Congratulations on finally completing this quilt – a quick addition works out to 2432 squares – what a feat – you must be so pleased with yourself 🙂

    1. I made this quilt a little different than the original pattern. It is based on 1-1/2″ squares and has 36 blocks. Because of that the math naturally changes. If I counted correctly the grand total is 5749 total pieces.

      Thanks for your kind comments. And, yes, I am so pleased to have it finished.

  4. Wow! I love it and you have inspired me to do leader/enders so one day in the future I will have a good start on a truly scrappy quilt like yours. I can only imagine how good it feels to be binding this project. I also love the hand binding part of quilting. It is relaxing and rewarding knowing it is the last step to a finished quilt. Look forward to seeing more views.

  5. Beautiful quilt! I love binding as well. Least favorite part of quilting, sewing rows and lattice strips.

  6. That finish is worth a bigger cheer than the average finish! And it looks good too. I need to get cutting scraps so I can make one. But maybe first I’ll trim my bonus triangles.

Thanks for taking the time to comment. It is nice to hear from you.
