Around the Block | Round Robin Quilt Along- Finishing the Quilt

Today we are finishing up the Round Robin– Around the Block Quilt along.

This has been one of the funnest quilt alongs I have done.  The designers were great {super thank you!}, the quilt blocks were perfect for each other….and so glad everything went together like they were meant to be.

Now that the quilts are all put together, I thought we’d talk a little bit about quilting and binding.

Machine Quilting:

I did a repeating circle in the sashing.  Simple and quick.  Makes life happy.  When I hit the pinwheels in the sashing, I did a little swirl and then moved onto the next section with the repeating circles.

Each quilt block got it’s own design, but I kep with the theme of apple cores {half circles}, circles, swirls and loops.  The large applique flower was quilted with echo quilting. {where you quilt around the shape, and then continue quilting around the shape following the same shape as before}

I used white thread for the whole quilt.  It hides for the most part and I am happy with how it turned out.

For the binding, I used 2 1/4″ strips and machine stitched the binding.   Here’s a tutorial for making your bias binding strips, and making your corners miter.  If you prefer a different method, here is a tutorial on folding the back to the front.

    I had thought of circles, but decided to stick with the star theme. Yours turned out great! I’m almost 1/2 done with the quilting, but it will have to wait until after the weekend to be finished.
