Fall Finish and I did a binding tutorial

The pattern for this quilt is from Fig Tree & Co. and the pattern is called Jelly Girl.  It was pretty easy but due to either my seams being inaccurate or I measured from the outside of the jelly roll strips and they measured from the inside (you know the pinked edges), the triangles around each hexagon were too small.  Luckily I had enough of the light to cut more.
So what does one do with the incorrectly cut triangles, well I added the pieced border (that is not originally on the pattern).  Also luckily I bought some matching solid 5" strips when I bought the jelly roll.
Here's a close up of how I quilted it.

And at guild last week a few ladies asked me how I finish off my bindings so I thought I would try my hand at a tutorial.  It's not a video, not ready to do that plus I usually sew in my pajama's and you don't want to see that.  Click on the tab above to check it out.

Will be having a busy weekend.  Friday night is Party Party Party at the local quilt store (aka CutThroat Quilters).  We usually stay until 2 but since I have to be up early on Saturday to go to Pacific International Quilt Festival in Santa Clara (about a 3 hour drive), I won't stay that long.  Then on Sunday, my hubby, in-laws and I head up to Livermore for our grandson's first birthday party.  So stay tuned for some great PIQF Show pictures and some cute cute cute baby pictures.

Thanks for looking.
