One more done...




Innova 2...

finished the binding on this one Sunday nite...its only about 3'x4' but the binding took about 6 hours of steady sewing to finish....its all those inny corners....a tip to the wise do not do these corners with a double binding...thats almost impossible to make it look neat on the back...and did i say i could do needle turned applique and have gotten awards for it so i can blind stitch with the best of them...but not these if they are double...

This quilt has a single thickness binding on it...much easier to do neatly.

I've tried to do those "innie" binding with disastrous results. Yours look fabulous! How'd you do it?

My quilt photos come out crooked and I've found that a quick fix in PS Elements is to choose >rotate canvas>arbitrary and then type in a number of degrees (usually 1 or 2) and the direction and then it looks much better. If you are using elements, you might try to adjust the levels.
