WIP: Binding the Playful Colors Quilt

I’m there!! I’m sooooo close!

I started the Playful Colors quilt on a whim. It was just something to do with a charm pack of crazy colors. It slowly grew into something that involved patches, sashing then borders. Slowly this whimsy of a project turned into a full blown blanket that is now on the verge of being done.

You can check out the vlog I made showing the sandwiching of my quilt. Thank goodness for smooth floors!

As of today, I’m officially binding it! WOOHOO!!! I started hand stitching my binding on this weekend after I butchered the quilt to near demolition. My binding didn’t attach properly and I took a short cut that ended up making a mess of everything. Still bummed about that but it’s working out ok as is.

I really like the way the quilting came out.


I did a simple wonky square inside every other patch. I used a gradient yellow-green thread on top and a solid green thread in the bobbin and that came out perfectly.

Now I’ve got my Wonder Clips in place holding my binding in place. I tend to stitch while my husband plays video games or watched football. That way we’re still hanging out yet I can wrap this project up at the same time.

My mitered corners are a bit of a mess due to the issues I had with the binding going on in the first place. But I’m happy to see this quilt wrapping up!
