December Goal Done!


My final One Monthly Goal of 2018:  Mrs. Billings Coverlet.
 Finally!
This was the best photo I was able to get for now--laid out on the floor of the Pelican Lake Conservation Club. 
Helping me get to  the  finish was this little gizmo I picked up on Black Friday. It's a Reliable travel size steamer. It is a steamer only--no heat setting, no dials, just on and off. Also, there are no feet or stands--it lays flat Fortunately, the travel case is also a heat resistant "trivet". Anyway, it steams like crazy and I was able to flatten my nine yards of backing fabric in about 10 minutes. 
The quilting was only done in the light areas, except for some of the larger motifs on the quilt. I ended up having a lot of fun doing it--nothing over the top, but I think it's okay.  


In my search for a binding, I came across the leftover's from another quilt backing. It had all the right colors so I decided to give it a go--it's a little different, but I like think the results are kind of fun.
Whew! What a year!

  9. Mrs. Billings was bound to be a challenge to create. So many little pieces and parts. A very good finish.

    I have seen those gizmos on quilt videos being used but I thought they were an iron. Is there an iron version or just the steam?
