The binding is on the first two quilts finished in 2014!
Redwork Snowmen Sampler is 22x27 and made with 5 inch finished blocks. I tried something new while quilting this one. I traced a stippling pattern from a template onto tissue paper, then laid the tissue paper on top of the quilt and quilted right through both. I pulled the paper off afterward and it worked pretty well. I need to get the hang of stippling in order to quilt the next step on the Chinese Coins and Lanterns wedding quilt. This was good practice, but I need more. The grey border is quilted in a triple zig-zag in the grey border, and the outer black border has simple free motion loops.
Little Bear Paw is 13 1/2 inches square and made from some of the trimmed triangles from Celtic Solstice, which is still in piecing stage. The quilting on this is mostly stitch-in-the-ditch, with a simple twist cable in the green border. This was inspired by a Kathleen Tracy quilt design, but mine has one more 'claw' on each side of the bear paw blocks.
After binding these I have used up 5.75 yards this year so far from my stash!
