I’m crazy about pleats lately and I had to share this beautiful vintage quilt by See Kate Sew!

Kate mentions it’s a great way to use up your scraps and it’s fabulous for a beginning quilter!

I love your blog, just stumbled across it...I do have a question about your binding technique. In the past I have doubled the binding by ironing it in half, sewing it to the front of the quilt, and then wrapping around to the back to hand-sew it on. Once in a pinch I tried to sew that binding on the back by machine instead of by hand...and it made all kinds of wonky looking, out of place stitch lines on the front of my quilt. TOTALLY unacceptable! With your suggestion of sewing it to the back first and then wrapping around to sew it down on the front with that narrow seam...does it leave any wonky looking stitches on the back? The front looks totally polished and beautiful, but how about the back...even if you use contrasting fabrics? If I never have to hand-sew a binding onto a baby quilt again I will jump for joy! Curious to hear your answer....thanks!
