Brenda Caron's Jacobean Tapestry

This is the second time I've gotten to work on this pattern. The first was when I quilted the class sample of it, for our local quilt shop in Okotoks, AB - Rumpled Quilt Skins.

Brenda chose shimmery, satiny fabric for the backing, and IT. WAS. BEAUTIFUL. The quilting shows up on it exquisitely! She also had me use the sateen for my "effortless binding". She brought extra yardage (uncut), and I completely finished it, using a piece of equipment that attaches to my domestic sewing machine. Honestly, without my binding tool, I'm not sure it would have been possible to use that slippery sateen for binding. I once tried to bind a ribbon quilt with satin, and it was a NIGHTMARE. But I think the binding turned out beautifully on this piece - thanks to my binding tool!

Brenda did such a great job on this piece! I was honored to be involved!
