On this Ozark Star project I first had to learn how to piece and by hand... did well with that (Yippee!... found excellent tutorials I shared along the way... but not so with binding by hand... so I jumped in once I finished the handquilting on the sandwiched top...
I turned to Quiltmaking by Hand but it only had a page and a half with scant pics on this topic... they were fast to answer my email request though and away I went! Chartering new territory for me... do you ever do that... challenge yourself to learn something new???
First I sewed it with a running stitch above (with lots of backstitches to make the overall stitches stronger and closer together...)
Then I enclosed it on the back side careful not to come through the top :)
Now to finish the final quilting and show off the end result. I also have to figure out how to sign this inconspicuously.. any ideas???
