WIP Wednesdays and a Give-a-Way

Short post today. I finished the back and made the binding for my jelly roll race quilt. I will not put on the binding until it is machine quilted. Thanks to all who responded to my question. I wonder why that is the way we were taught all those years ago? 

This photo is not my favorite. When this quilt is finished, it will look a lot prettier. I did audition this when I purchased the fabric for the back, which is the dark blue batik on the right side of the photo. It is sewn together. The white batik strip going diagonally across will be the binding. And to the left which you’ve seen finished is the top – a jelly roll race pattern made with Timeless Treasure Batiks – Watermelon.



Below is the finished top.

  1. Your top looks great! I've never heard of binding before quilting! I was always told that the quilt can shrink while you quilt, so if you bind first, it could look funny? I have no idea!

    Thanks for also hosting a giveaway! I'm definitely drooling over the Moroccan Lanterns pattern. It's such a gorgeous quilt!

  2. The back you picked for your quilt is going to look so good. Do you know how you're going to quilt it yet? I have a top I've been staring at for two days tring to decide on a quilting design…… 🙂

    I like a lot of Lee's patterns but I really like her Diamond Tread one. Thanks for the giveaway!
