I continued working on my neon quilt. Love that image above. I just love the way all these colors look together. I think all those strips sewn together would make a nice quilt just by themselves!
Today I worked on the binding. I had bought some jelly rolls to make binding. I started by finding a pleasing arrangement. Then I sewed all the strips together (see picture at the top).
I pressed the whole thing and then sliced them into 2.5 inch strips. Finally, I pressed it in half lengthwise and rolled it around a tube. I now have yards and yards of beautiful binding. I might have enough for 2 quilts, actually. Frankly, I think the binding took more time than the actual quilt top, but I don’t mind because I think it came out fantastic!
Next up is getting some batting and piecing the back together . . .
