I refuse to use horrid templates! So I needed to do a practice to make sure I could rotary cut it and still sew it accurately. I can.
This was only the second quilt I've done with binding attached by machine both front and back. I struggled a bit with the non right-angled corners, but only one out of the six wasn't very good - you'd still have to look closely to spot it - especially on the glass table that reads dark grey in the photos.
I hand quilted it with Perle cotton.A quilt, a cuppa and a snoozing doggy - a perfect bank holiday!
