First Finish of 2011

January 1, 2011

A project I began last summer...Make Life Disappearing 9 Patch 

I have to say, using the technique of  a faux piped binding is my favorite way to finish a quilt. You can find Trisha's  tutorial @ TLC Stitches.


  1. I just love your statement of faith:) From one sheep to another!

    Love the fabrics in your quilt! It's so so sweet.

    Happy stitching!

  2. Love it! Thanks for sharing the tutorial. I need to try it out.

  3. What a great-looking quilt!
    I had plans to finish the binding on 2 quilts today - one is a disappearing 9-patch too! - and also hoped to finish my MIL's (late) Christmas gift, participate in an online mystery quilt project, and catch up on my layer-cake quilt blocks.
    Well.... my MIL's gift is done (I should have pics up soon!)! I haven't managed to find my layer-cake yet, the binding hasn't been touched, and I got the fabrics cut out for the mystery quilt project - and that's it! Wait - I did a bit of tidying in my craft room...

  4. that piping trick looks so cool...this is a great quilt and you got that done awfully quick

  5. Thanks for sharing that tutorial. I have never seen that method of binding before. It looks good.

    Your quilt is gorgeous and I applaud you on your first finish of 2011!

  6. Great finish and thanks for the link to the tute! I host "Finished for Friday" and I invite you to link this up next Friday. It's like show and tell for grownups.

  7. Such a lovely little quilt. Will check out the tutorial for the faux binding as I am always looking for an alternative technique to try.
