Completion to Crow Over

Today marked the first time I hand-sewed a binding on and I loved it.

Would you like to see it ?~!

There she is-complete except for a label.

Close-up of the binding. What do you think ?
I did not cut it on the bias and I don't know why it makes a difference ?~!
Anyone help me with this question, I appreciate it.

Who loves his new lap warmer !~!


  1. Beautiful, Lynda. The only reason I know for cutting the binding on the bias is to help hide the seam, but I don't know if it helps or if it matters. My philosophy? Your quilt. Your rules.

  2. I love your scrappy quilt, it looks great! you are so patient to hand quilt it :-) As for binding, I learned that it was so it all lays a bit flatter and doesn't create bulk.

  3. Hallo Linda, thanks for your jind comment on my works. The bias binding helps on the rounded edges, on the linear edges bias or not it's the same.

  4. Thanks for your help. I appreciate the compliments too.

  5. Sweet quilt Lynda! Quiltycat has the right answer about bias bindings.
