Binding the Happy Scrappy Quilt

 It's time to bind the Happy Scrappy quilt.  First I trimmed the backing and batting even with the quilt top.  

 I like to match my binding fabric to my outer border fabric, but in this case, the outer border was made up of a lot of brightly and different colored triangles.  I didn't want the binding to be quite that noisy.  This quilt needed something calming to hold it all together.  I chose to use two different blues for the binding strips.  Here I am sewing them all together to make one long strip.

 Trimming the triangles off.

 My binding, pressed and ready to sew to the quilt top.

 Pinning the binding to the quilt top.

Machine stitching the binding to the quilt.  I like to machine stitch the binding to the top, then fold it around to the back and hand stitch.  I enjoy hand stitching and usually do this on my front porch, or while watching television.  This quilt is almost finished.  Check back soon for the big reveal.
