Well, since I've been so inspired, I wanted to show off my first "quilted and binded (bound???)" quilt (the captions go with the photos above each caption):
The finished product! I purchased the binding on Etsy.com from Shasta Creations. YAY! I truly believe that I will learn to make my own binding some day, but until then, I am glad to purchase it. I have no problem with that at all. In fact, I am working on a second quilt now, and I will be purchasing the binding from the same Etsy shop.
