At last the binding is on The Sopwell Ladies Basket Society quilt. This red fabric with the tiny black stars was included with the kit and it's just perfect for the binding. I prefer using a wider binding on my larger quilts, and these strips were cut at 3.25" then joined with diagonal seams before being folded in half, then machine stitched to the front of the quilt, with mitred corners. The double fold binding was hand stitched in place to the back of the quilt using an Aurifil 40wt red quilting thread.
