Miniature Done

I finished the binding on "Fragrant Memories" miniature last night while I was watching TV. Decided to put a tiny folded strip of the red just to the inside of the binding. Do like how it turned out.

Was a little tricky to keep the red strip even since it was so narrow - bottom rt. corner is a little off and top right corner of my binding looks a little too pointed. Hey - can you tell I am a perfectionist! Am working on trying not to be but it just comes out. I hate it when I can't make things perfect.

This is a close up of one of the corners. You can see I didn't miter the red piece at the corners.

Windy day but the temperature has climbed to the mid 40s today so all the snow is melting except what is in the shade. The wind is blowing again too - seems like the wind is always blowing in Nebraska!

This miniature is just darling. I like the red piece as well - just that little extra that adds something.

Too, too cute.

Lovely quilt and you shouldn't be too harsh on yourself.... The little bit of red adds a zing in the border area. Your machine quilting is gorgeous.

This miniature is perfect and the binding with piping is perfect too, as usual ! Congratulations !

Beautiful! What a charming little project!

Mitering the red insert? I would never have thought of that, but I DO miter many corners. I tend to think the red, if mitered, would be bulky? This is lovely as is.
