Silent Night Center Piece
Last week I took part in the Sew Mama Sew giveaway and in my post I showed you this piece that wasn’t finished. It is now finished and ready for the holidays.
I used the Silent Night grouping of Island Batik fabrics…..beautiful metallic batiks. I used 3 different colors of thread for my free motion quilting. I just did my favorite stippling on my 15-91 vintage Singer.
Most of the time I attach my binding to the front of the quilt and then machine stitch it down on the back. Occasionally I will have a piece like this where the binding is black and the front border is white.
I don’t want to stitch with white thread on the front and have it show on the back black binding so. I attached the binding on the backside and then stitched it down on the front. I used black thread and you can see that it is right up against the binding. Sometimes it shows a little but it looks nice on the front.
I really like my battery operated candles that look so real. I really like this design and plan on working with it again next year.
