I got on with the binding yesterday and it didn't take too long in the end. I really love it now it's finished. It's got that lovely soft vintage-y feel you get with old linens that have been well used, and the pretty bits of embroidery now get to be seen, rather than sit in a cupboard .
It wasn't the easiest thing to photograph, being very pale, but I think I captured the feel of it.
Here it's just finished and ironed nice and smooth!
After a wash and tumble it's lovely and crinkly, though I think it might be better ironed if it's used on a table. Can't decide!
The back is an old white tablecloth, just the right size. The quilting is quite minimal, just a couple of lines either side of each row as I didn't want to go over the embroidery.
Looks like we've seen the end of summer, there's a nip in the air today. I'm off to dig out the winter duvet :)
