WIP Wednesday - Week 46 - Overlocking, Eye Candy and D9P ongoing...

Well my 19 day challenge continues. With now only 11 days to go. *ekkk!* I got this beautiful rusty red homespun for the border, photo here doesn't do it justice. Just gone for a simple 4.5 inch wide border. Have it all sandwiched up here and I started to quilt it after this shot was taken, going for the simple and quick approach of just quilting around each full square, I think that will work.

The lovely Leah asked about overlocking the edges of your quilt before binding, so this photo is just for you Leah! Just overlock as normal. I have ready a small zig zag stitch works too. Try it, let me know how you go!

I had some fat quarters arrive that I won off ebay too this week. 8 different prints from Valori Wells, a range called Sole. Just found out that she has a blog here. No idea what I'm going to sew with these goodies though, sure I'll be inspired soon enough!

Helen thanks for the raggedy edges tutorial/ sew along, i made one for my son for his first birthday and enjoyed it, of course except all the snipping! My lil boy is loving cuddling up to it and my daughter wants one too!

Thanks for sharing it way back when!
