I've been trying to incorporate quilting into smaller projects, so i've been trying to work on at least two new things a week. This is a mini quilt, with a pocket on the back for a pillow. This is the first time i hand sewed the binding, and i'm in love with it. I wish i had hand sewed the binding on all of my big quilts instead of taking the easy way out. Oh well i'll know for next time. Anyways here are the pictures...

I used a charm pack from moda's cornucopia line, and coordinating fabrics for backing and binding!

That is so cute!  I like how you did the buttons on the back - makes it extra cute.

I haven't figured out binding yet.  It just seems so HARD to do!  So my quilts are cute, but no edges/bindings.  That makes me sad.

I think i may write up a little tutorial for how i did the binding, i've noticed there isn't one on the quilting board. The biding was really easy!

I have to confess I never looked for a tutorial - it intimidates me!  But it is cute!

It looks really great.  The way you did the quilting really makes the design.

Holy crapmypants. Those are really, really adorable. I'm envisioning those in that fabric we bought at the quilt show now. Actually, I'm envisioning a lot of stuff in that fabric. What to do??
