Sew Fresh Quilt completed!

The Fall Leaves quilt top has been layered, basted, quilted and bound...  I used the fall leaves print for the backing and for the binding.  Binding... I tried the machine stitched on the back method by stitching in the ditch on the front.  It is a little quicker than hand stitching, but I am not as happy with the look and will be reluctant to try it again soon, but I still have hope in mastering it.

I took the quilt out to get some pics using my daughter's ipod.  Could not see a thing on the display!  And I think the direct sunlight was TOO bright.  So I will try getting some better pics this week.

Here is a pic of the quilting, close up.

Black thread was used for the whole quilt - piecing, quilting and binding.
And it is the first quilt that I made using my Spoonflower quilt labels!

I also decided on the backing for the Enchantment pinwheel quilt and it is ready for layering.  I was really on a roll because I also have a matching pillow ready to be quilted.  I am going to attempt a free motion design, so the pillow will be my practice piece.

Meanwhile, our computer was in for repair.  The USB ports were not working and I could not upload any photos.  It took them two full days to get at it and get it back to us.  So I did a LOT of housework and will have no guilty conscience to contend with come Monday.  Glorious Monday... When the house is quiet, empty and quilty.

Hey, I do love them, but relish the time alone quilting!

What is your favourite time to quilt, sew or craft?
