I'm not any kind of quilter but this was FUN. A lot of work even in this simple construction but fun nonetheless. I even bound the edges properly with mitred corners and a perfectly joined binding... if I do say so. I made up the pattern for the top - it's just vertical strips about the width of our floor boards - easy to run your scissors along! I found this article a lot of help with the binding. I followed all the instructions except I started at the back of the quilt folding the binding over to the front of the quilt and then top stitching with the machine. I've said it before, I do not hand stitch things.
By the way, I did finish it in time for Little Miss Cuggle's 3rd birthday a couple of weeks ago. : ) Kim
