I took some photos in the early morning sunshine.
Center of quilt.
I often machine bind quilts for customers. I have some customers that always have me bind their quilts. I never hand sew bindings---even for myself. I think the last hand sewn binding I did was back in 2005. I sew the binding on the wrong side of the quilt, turn it to the top and topstitch it down, catching the backing all in one pass. I use my old well-loved Bernina virtuosa 163.
