And here is how it looks from the other side. I thought it would be more secure to attach your binding ALL the way to the end instead of stopping 1/4" from the end to make my miter. I would up with rounded off wonky corners b/c for some reason I felt like I knew better than the lady who wrote the tutorial (crazy mom herself). Yeah, I'm hard headed.
So there you have it...my first quilt. You know I still like that crazy fabric. I am glad i made this quilt and (at least temporarily) thought it was HOT instead of a hot mess. Quilting brings me a lot of happiness and I'm glad I had enough confidence to keep on going. Two years later and I've been able to make lots more quilts, be featured on Moda Bakeshop, have a quilt at the Quilt Festival, and now I'm working on my first quilt for a magazine! I'm glad I listened to the person who said "it's just fabric" and started cutting instead of being paralyzed by a fear of failure or perfectionism.
