This is just a tease to show you the scalloped borders on Madrigal. One side is finished.....just three more to go! You can really see the wonderful Urban Cowgirl fabrics in this close-up. I loved the lacey look of the fabric in the setting triangles. The small red border, block center, and binding is American Banner Rose fabric.
It is a little trickier sewing binding to a scalloped border, but so worth the time! I use these wonderful little clips to hold the binding securely while I stitch. The scallop isn't very 'deep' which makes it easier to attach the binding. I started with a 2-1/4" strip of binding.
I will stitch today until my arm tells me to stop. Hopefully I can get another side or two finished then I'll attach the hanging sleeve. Soon I can take pictures of the whole quilt and put this in the finished column.
I love to work on binding. It gives me a chance not to have to think too hard about anything. It's a wonderful sense of completion, relaxation and contemplation about my next design. I can also sit in front of the boob tube and not feel guilty and not feel guilty about wasting my time!
I hope all of you have get a sense of completion today and can move on to something else that brings you great satisfaction.
