Striped Batik.......cut on 45 degree angle
I cut the binding strips 1 3/4 inches...
They wrapped nice and tight around the edge and filled up the binding round and plump.

Milk River Ridge
By: Ian Tyson
Is a favorite of ours.
This quilt lends itself nicely to the machine quilting process.
As you top stitch over all of the applique' pieces, you are actually doing the machine quilting.
The only quilting I had to plan out was the background behind the horse, and I simply echo quilted the shapes around the horse head.
The border area only needed some wavy lines, no intricate quilting motifs.
The thread work remains secondary, so the horse is the main focus.
If you have a Toni Whitney pattern.....pull it out of the cupboard and treat yourself to a few hours of fun!
I have maybe 20 hours total into the making of this quilt.
It was a joy.
