Design Wall Monday

I have bound 2 quilts this weekend and now I can start on something else. I made this quilt for my sister, her birthday is the 20th.  Thanks to Beth from our local guild for showing us how to do this piped binding, I love it. Now if I could just sew a straight seam it would look alot better, I guess practice makes perfect.  I found a tutorial on this binding at The quilt is made with jelly rolls and the fabric is from Fig Tree Quilts.

We went to Pigeon Forge TN, Gatlingburg, TN and Asheville, NC.  It was beautiful!  My husband even stopped at 2 quilt shops along the way. My 1st stop was at, "Mountain Stitches by Susan" in Gatlinburg and the next one was at, "Quilters Quarters" in Waynesville, NC. Both shops were great and the ladies were so nice and helpful.  We went on to Asheville so I could see the Biltmore.  So glad we took the time to go there it was wonderful seeing the Biltmore Estate and staying at the Biltmore Inn.  We went by ourselves this trip and we enjoyed it very much.
