It is time to link up our log cabins with Bea and Cecile. I have been experimenting with a new “potholder method”. I am bringing the back around to the front for binding and then machine stitching them together.
I trim the backing to 1" around the edge of the quilted block, then turn it under and stitch.
I cut out a bit of the corner piece to make it less bulky.
I am alternating red and beige backings so that the back will look like patchwork too. I am stitching them together at a scant 1/8" seam allowance.
I’m not 100% happy with the outcome, but I am willing to keep trying to perfect the method.
This one will be for one of our veteran’s so I chose red, white and blue as my color scheme.
