Quilted not bound

     I have been able to only get two quilts done on the longarm. I have so many to do. These two are done, but need binding. I usually wait until I have at least 3 until I bind them because to drag fabric choices out, cut, iron, and glue- it is easier in groups.
     The first is one made from blocks that were in a bundle of scraps and fabric donated to me.

The back- the stripe is actually bright pink, not orange

     The next one is Bright Birches, using made fabric for the strips. I varied the quilting the long way, using a pattern for each long space from top to bottom, and then using a different pattern for the next long space after the Birch strip.

Very nice!

The quilts and the quilting are lovely! I really enjoy binding, because when that is done it is really a finished quilt and not just a bunch of fabric.

I've never the block pattern on the first quilt. They both turned out nice.

I love them both. Quilting certainly makes the quilt!

How was it quilting through all of those seams in the made fabric. I think I will rename it to FF (Fabricated Fabric). I love alliterative acronyms.
