Gypsy Dance Finished



My Gypsy Dance quilt is all finished up.  I quilted it with echoing boxes inside the lattice design of the quilt.  I wanted to keep it simple, but to amplify the pattern that Bree over at Distant Pickles designed.

 



I was going to hand sew the binding down, but I got lazy and wanted to work on my Ring Around Potholders instead of hand stitching the binding in place.  I have yet to hand sew the binding down.  Maybe my next quilt.




The lovely places I link to....

  5. Very pretty. I'm surprised the binding is not hand sewn - it looks so nice. If mine was machine sewn you would certainly be able to tell (ask me how I know)!

    1. Thanks, Cathy! I haven't quite got the hang of binding. I pretty much dislike it completely. You are so patient if you hand sew all your binding.

  6. Beautiful quilt Amy! Such gorgeous colours. And I really like the quilting. I'm with you about the binding. I have yet to sew down a binding by hand... I'm just not that patient! :-)

  9. Beautiful quilt! I love the bright colors and am super impressed by the machine binding. I always hand sew the back of the binding because I can never seem to catch the entire thing while I sew. It must save so much time.

    1. Thanks, Stacey! I can't imagine hand sewing all the binding down. You are fabulous if you hand sew it all the time. I know that I would not have finished my two quilts if I had hand sewn them. They would be bindless quilts. Thanks for stopping in!

  12. You have such a beautiful eye for color and choosing such an appealing design! Handsewing the binding certainly must not be important from the look of what you have here. I just love it!

  16. Just love the fabrics and colors and what a great pattern! I used to sew my binding by hand but there are too many other things I want to work on so it gets done by machine! Thanks for sharing.
