I thought that a plain white binding is not enough for my new quilt. So I “painted” it – with the thick Aurifil 12wt thread.
So much fun!
It took me some time and thread…
…and here is- enough for a 80” square quilt.
Now to see how the quilt turned out!
Finished quilt here.
Such a great idea, Geta! It's beautiful. Can't wait to see what it looks like on the quilt.
Geta es una idea genial!!! te quedó precioso con las rayas de colores. Un beso
What a great idea! I love stripy bindings anyway but to stitch your own-well done!
Great idea! That is going to look fantastic.
This is fantastic!!!
Such a great idea!!
You drive us nuts! 🙂
I love it!!!

What a fabulous idea! It looks terrific and I bet the texture is amazing!

What a brilliant idea! I love the effect but I doubt that I'd ever have the patience to do this myself!

Precioso!!, muy original y nada fácil de realizar.
OMGosh Geta!!! What a great idea. Can't wait to see this on your quilt. It takes me long enough to finish a quilt, I don't see myself tackling something like this!!! You are so clever!!

I can't believe how much patience you have! Wow. What a great idea.
Now I see what does it mean "thick thread"!
Clever use of it for binding!
You are a mountain of patience!

Amazing, I certainly would never have the patience for this so I can appreciate the amount of work involved and admire with awe 🙂

Thought you bought it, but YOU made it! Amaizing!! So looking forward to see how the finished quilt looks like!!
fantastico te ha quedado mu bonito .besos
You are so clever and creative ~ I see a trend starting!
Looks great… how did you make it? I thought maybe this was a tutorial about how you made the binding. O well. I certainly love the look!!!
You are a genius with thread and fabric!! So pretty!!
Oh my goodness Geta. Did you sew on one color first and then go back to add the next color and so on? I wouldn't have the patience to change thread each time. What a unique idea. Thank you for sharing so much of yourself!
Again – so late in reading all my favorite blogs! I just love this idea Geta and might try it on one of mine sometime. Thanks.
