I laid the straight piece of facing fabric on the table and then laid the quilt on top of it and pinned it in place. I stitched 1/4" from the edge of the quilt and then trimmed away the extra facing fabric. Then I clipped the quilt on all inward curves.
I turned the facing to the back of the quilt and pressed the edge. Next was the hand sewing of the edge of the facing to the quilt back.
I will finish the top edge which is straight with a normal binding. Then I can attach the hanging sleeve in the seam like I usually do. I am auditioning this black with dots fabric for the binding. I thought I had some more of the firefly batik but haven't found it yet.
I also ditch quilted this small wallhanging last night. I will bind it with a black print batik. I need to finish the vacuuming in the basement today so I have tomorrow free for baking and last minute things. It looks like the art quilters won't be kept away because of snow but it is going to be really cold, like 11 degrees on Monday. My house is very warm though.
