I just opened an Etsy store! Here is the link. I am so excited about this! So far I have posted my Little Blue Quilt and personalized burp cloths, with more items to come :)
For now I'm going to get my focus back on finishing Sentimental Me, tonight I plan on piecing the back, and then tackling the monstrous project of basting the big thing. I might try spray basting for the first time, especially since I've decided to quilt it in a grid pattern.
Also, I have made a major quilting decision. I will not machine stitch anymore bindings. After trying several methods I have decided it is just not worth it in the end. A hand stitched binding just looks and feels so much better.
While I love the speed and easy of machine stitching the bindings, I am just not happy with then finished product. After all the work of piecing, basting and quilting, I think its worth the extra effort to finish it off nicely.
So, Sentimental Me will definitely have a hand stitched binding :)
