On the Road to Spring quilt-along week 6

Week 6 was the binding. The first step is cutting 2 1/2 inch strips the width of the fabric. Then sew them together either end to end or diagonally. I'm not going to try to explain that. Here's a great tutorial. So now I've got a really long piece of binding. Iron it in half, sew it to the right side of the quilt with raw edges even. See tutorial for what you do when you get to the corners. Once its on then I fold it over to the back and hand sew it in place.

Here's the finished quilt for the quilt-along.

The binding material is perfect to complete the cheerful look of the quilt. It has a look also of spring/summer which is so wished for around these parts - a breath of fresh air to a winter weary soul.
