By Hand


A few months ago now I finished some quilted scarves for the girls and bought some material for myself. I patched the scarf together quickly, but the quilting took longer. I hand quilted and started with a scallop shell pattern but it looked too fussy. I procrastinate about pulling back, so that part stalled the process for a while. I then elected something very simple and I really like how this part of it has turned out. Now the binding. I've done very poor corners on the quilts I've made for the girls and that's despite looking at a tutorial online. I'll try again and see if I can't get it right this time. Any tips though, for super neat corners, warmly welcomed.
