Barcelona Quilt Bound

I finally put the binding on my Barcelona Quilt. I first posted about it in July 2014. It was the first quilt top that I ever put together. I followed the "Double Slice Layer Cake" YouTube tutorial from Jenny Doan of the Missouri Star Quilt Company. I was amazed how easy the blocks were to put together. I also love the "Barcelona" fabric from Moda.

I learned a lot during this whole process. I think the most important thing I learned is that no one is going to notice if my seams match except me. :) I also learned that a good sewing machine is key to a great binding. I love my PFAFF with integrated dual feed. It acts like a walking foot without having to put a walking foot on. I zig zag stiched the binding on this one because I plan on using the quilt as a bed spread on one of our guest beds and it will be laundered frequently.
