I finished my Petite Posies mini-quilt yesterday (see original blog post), and wanted to share of few of the details with you!
My idea was to have a very uncomplicated border, so as not to compete with or draw attention away from those wonderful 30’s flowers. Binding or no binding? Finally I decided on a simple turned-under edge, made with the so-called pillowcase technique (find a terrific tutorial in Quilting Daily’s free e-book Quilt Binding and Finishing Methods.)
Auditioning potential border fabrics took awhile, but eventually I whittled the choices down to these two. I decided the floral worked best, in keeping with the overall floral theme; the diagonal check became the backing. Both are modern reproduction fabrics.
