Slow Sunday Stitching-Coming Across the Finish Line

Today I hope to finish up my son's wall hanging. Though it is hand pieced and hand quilted, I just could not make myself attach the binding  by hand. I will sew it down by hand, of course. I decided to put on the binding before I do the quilting on the edge triangles and the corners. Seemed like it will be easier that way. 

I had hoped to make a two-sided binding on this quilt. I thought I  would like a light blue binding on the front. But, the backing is a tone on tone rust color print. Well, after I miscut the binding  I finally decided I preferred do the whole binding in the rust fabric. There are some wonderful tutorials online on how to make  a double sided binding. Perhaps I'll check one out before I try again. LOL

Below is one of the corners. I think I will quilt the corners as one large triangle. What do you think?
I am linking up to Kathy's Quilts for Slow Sunday Stitching. Check out what everyone else is doing today.

Donna, what a great job you have done on this wonderfully quilted project! I love rust for the binding .. front and back! Sometimes accidents are happy ones! Thanks for sharing! Kathi

I don't think I'll ever try to sew a binding on by hand ... I can't imagine going through all those layers. While a 2-color binding would have been so pretty, I love the rust binding and think it will really bring out the rest of the rust in the top.

I love the thread colour you chose for this quilt. Your binding is a nice frame for this beautiful quilt.
