How did you do your binding?
Looks awesome!  What did you use for the edging? and also I was wondering if you cut out the blocks as 9x9 exactly and then lost a little when you sewed or did you make them like 10x10 at first?  I cant wait to try something similar!

For the binding/edging I did a "cheat" method where you cut the back about 2 inches bigger all around and then fold it over onto the top.  I fold it in half so the raw edge is hidden, then fold it over onto the quilt and stitch away Smiley

As for the block size, I cut each block out with a 9.5x9.5 ruler so I had 1/4 inch seam allowance on each side.  Each block is a finished 9 inch block.

Thank you so much for your comments and questions!!! Grin
