Plume Quilt Progress

I film videos about what crafts I’m working on about once a month or so to share with friends in the Talk to Me Tuesday community.  Usually I’m on camera showing things, but this week I filmed a lot about my Plume quilt, with all the focus on the quilting.

In the video I talk about the quilting that isn’t finished and trying to figure out how to finish it. I’ve decided to do straight line quilting every half inch, so I’ve got the inside part of the borders done and tomorrow will get the outside part of the borders quilted. After that it’ll be trimming and binding.

I need to make new plans for the binding. It was supposed to be the same brown fabric as the flanges, but I hadn’t been able to find the binding fabric anywhere. I went looking today again after filming this video and I found some of it… and it’s only about 8.5-inches by width of fabric. Definitely not enough to bind the whole quilt. I was prepared to swear I had at least a half yard of that brown fabric, but I must have…. used it for something. I can’t think of what or why I would have done it, but it doesn’t seem to exist anymore. Frustrating. I have very, very little Plume fabric in my stash, so I have to decide now if I want to just use a solid brown (if I can find a match!) or if I want to use some other Tula Pink fabric in my stash or…. I don’t know. Something else entirely? Brown feels like the right finish, like a frame around the project. Why on earth would I have used my binding fabric for something else?!

  1. Well, if you’re like me, the brown will show up if you use something else! Seems to be a law.

    1. I wish that were the reason, but I know it’s not… I always leave the making of binding to the very end. I must have used it for something, but I really can’t figure out what! (And despite supposedly having this blog as a record-keeper, I’m really not very good at keeping records of the things I’ve made!)
