Figgy Rail Fence Endings Part I

Remember the Figgy Rail Fence quilt I opened the blog with?

Well, quilting progress came to a halt when I realized that I cut the backing and batting too short. I got mad then stopped working on it. Typical.

I pulled it back out this weekend and analyzed the situation and it's not SO bad. I know I did a lot of things wrong with this quilt, so I am slowly getting over every little thing because the colors are so pretty. 

(I already know what is wrong with this picture. I made a conscious decision to NOT fix the batting and backing because I was too lazy. We will see what happens. Might be bad news.)

 (Excuse the floors! Doing a little basting..)

 (More basting)

 (Quilted the center, rail fence, portion of the quilt using a cross hatch that is about 3in x 3in)

I am not in an outrageous need to finish the rest of the quilting because I cannot find a binding fabric that I like. I searched through my stash and then stared at the fabric stacks at Joann's for about an hour on Sunday.

Does anyone have any suggestions? I want to find a light light yellow almost beige pin dot fabric. Not big dots, just little dots. Help?

  1. Glad you returned to this pretty quilt, Lauren. It's looking lovely!
    Sorry to hear you're stuck with not finding what you want for binding. I know what that's like - and it's frustrating. Just wondering if you have fabric left from making the blocks and could make a scrappy binding? Just a thought.
