Gentle Mantle Binding : :

It was nearly two months ago when I decided on my Gentle Mantle in Land, Fleet & Flourish stripe to use for binding my Diamond Weave Quilt. Two months, oh where does the time go?!

That day I cut a little more than a 1/2 yard piece from the bolt and haven't touched it since. Well, yesterday I finally made the time to turn it into binding, a nice big roll to finish up my quilt with extra to use on future projects.

This blue, peach, aqua, and red colorway is my very favorite of this particular print. The colors look so pretty all curled together, I had to take a picture to share!

And I didn't stop there, I continued until my quilt was bound & completely finished!

Gentle Mantle was the perfect choice for this quilt, I can't wait to get photos so you can see!

I might have to make a few neatly bound pillows to match!
