binding the burst

**The Brown Needle is now Sewlio. As of 5/1/13, all new blog posts can be found at . Hope to see you there!**

Today I'm binding my Starburst quilt. After a (hopefully) minor back injury and a sick child, we were blessed with two snow days. I was finally able to get the quilting finished this morning while the kids were making a mess snow fort in the front yard. All that stippling took forever! I'm chose scrappy binding because it's my favorite and because it works with this quilt.

I worked out a few kinks in the pattern and added a lot of tips. Things are really starting to come together and I'm getting a teensy bit excited.

Happy Friday!


  1. Oh, my GOSH, this looks great so far!

    So excited! :)

  2. Can't wait to see the finished quilt, and get my hands on your pattern!

  3. A scrappy binding is perfect! Look forward to seeing this dazzler when it is done!

    Have a super great sewing and stitching day!

  4. I love it! I can not wait for the pattern!!
