RWB Rails

I did manage to get the RWB wonky rails trimmed and bound yesterday. I stitch all my bindings down by hand after machine stitching them to the front of the quilt and this one went pretty quick last night while I was watching more of the Olympics. This quilt will head to CO as part of Alycia's 400 Quilts of Valor for 2009 project.

You can find instructions for this quilt at my MaryQuilts.com site.

For some reason, the horizontal lines are more prominent in the photo above but in person...you see both the vertical and horizontal lines equally like in this photo below.

Just one more small quilt to be bound so I'll have to get some more quilted. I was going to load my string heart top today that will be donated to someone battling Leukemia via Clare's Quilts for Leukemia program but I want to take it with me today when I speak to the Quilting Queens' guild in Roseville so I'll load it tomorrow.

You are really getting a lot accomplished! Great job. I'm so impressed with all the charity quilts you get done. It's a real blessing to those in need.

Thank you so much for sharing your progress. You are an inspiration to me who is just starting back up after a two year lull in sewing/quilting.

Thanks for sharing your Binding Olympics! It's been fun to watch your progress over the days :)

This is gorgeous, Mary!! You deserve a gold medal for all of the charity quilts that you get done.
Just out of curiosity, about what size quilts do you make for charity?
How is Chesty doing?

The quilt is great. Thanks for mentioning Alycia on a previous post. I contacted her and was able to donate to them a quilt, and they even offered to put the binding on for me!
