Sew Retro, Baby! binding on and done...

First off... I would like to thank all those who have visited my blog and were kind enough to leave a comment and/or suggestion on my last post.  I was having a lot of trouble deciding on what to use for a binding on this quilt.  I really appreciate your encouragement and every one of your suggestions.  THANK YOU!

I did not get any sewing done yesterday.  I went to see my parents in Stratford and also had the immense pleasure of seeing my favourite niece, who is up visiting from Milwaukee, Wisconsin for her spring break.  It was sew nice to be able to give her a big hug!

And that feel-good mood was only enhanced by the little stop I made in town to do a bit of fabric shopping.  Yippee!  Although I had a few of those suggestions in mind when I walked in the shop..... That is where I discovered the answer to what I would use to bind the Sew Retro, Baby!

Sew, here she is!
 This crib quilt is approximately 48" x 54" and was made using 3" finished size blocks.



I used the same method with the binding faux flange as I used on the Puppy Love quilt.  In that post there was also a link to this great tutorial: Susie's Magic Binding method.

Another piece of good news....
I finally got the timing right on a project finish to link up to Link-a-Finish-Friday at Richard Quilts!
