Congratulations! You are done quilting your quilt.
Did you notice something? Every line you stitched started on the edge of the quilt and ended on the edge of the quilt. Do you know what that means? There are no threads to bury … Yay!!! (Unless of course you ran out of bobbin thread somewhere along the way.)
It’s time to square up your quilt by trimming the excess batting off. Don’t be afraid to cut threads as you trim, the ends will all be secured in the binding. I am not going to post a binding tutorial as there are many tutorials online or you may already have a favourite method.
My mini quilt will be a table topper or wall quilt but you could make a cushion or maybe you’ve got another idea. I’d love to see what you do with yours.
By the way have you looked at the back? Doesn’t it look amazing too?
