First I have to show you this Moda fabric I got the other was the end of the bolt so got a bit over two yards for a pretty good price.  BTW, for those that don't know, Moda is a a brand of know how jeans have makers such as Levi's, Wranglers, Lee would not believe all the brands of fabric.  But Moda is one of my favorite brands...along with all the rest of them.  LOL

Giving the second view to give you scale...the cutting mat it is laying on has lines every inch....but that first photo gives the real feel of the fabric.  I had gotten some of this in a bag of scraps and hated to even use it  I like it so well....and my daughter likes it, so one of us will find a use for it.  Right now, I just like admiring it.  LOL


I got the binding made for my daughter's Lotus Quilt...she had the top quilted by a shop with a long arm quilting machine.

I just love the fabric daughter chose.  This is over 400 inches of binding.

I wanted to show this view.  First I cut strips of fabric the width of the fabric.  In this case the strips are 2 1/4 inches wide, and sew them together--end to end.  If I had thought I would have taken pics to show how I do that.   But maybe you are not interested in that anyway.  Then I fold the fabric in half  and press, and fanfold it as I get enough pressed.  That way I can put it down by my right side and it does not become a tangled mess as I sew it to the quilt.

Hope everyone is having a good week.
