String quilt binding

I have finally quilted my string quilt that I started in June.
string quilt binding 
I procrastinated quilting this because I am not very good at free motion quilting. After quilting it last weekend, I decided no more free motion quilting until I can buy a Bernina that has the stitch regulator feature (so no more free motion for quite some time...)!!!
I'm binding it today. Hope the Kona Robin Egg blue isn't too bright for this quilt. 

I'm gearing up for a giveaway here to celebrate my birthday next week.  It will be a fun one with older Munki Munki prints! Stay tuned.


  1. It looks great! Nice job. And I didn't write it on the other comment, but I am super jealous of who you get to be in the bee with.

  2. I think it looks great! I have the Bernina with the stitch regulator and I get out of control with it! This quilt is lovely and your quilting looks wonderful!

  3. I don't know if you have any quilt stores near you. But in my area (large megalopolis called Los Angeles) there are several quilt stores which rent long-arm machines. They also give lessons on how to use the long-arm before renting. The lesson is expensive, but it is a one time fee. Once you learn, it is soooooo worth it. Recently I quilted a twin size quilt on a long-arm in 35 minutes and the rental fee was $17. And of course the other benefit of the long-arm NO pinning. You use approx. 30 straight pins to pin the top and bottom of the quilt to the rails and that's it. Takes much of the pain out of quilting.
