Thanks lovelies :love: I had no idea it was so hard to make colour choices!

Can anyone help with my other questions? I'm scared to start cutting, pinning, and quilting tomorrow! :panic:

You could put different colours in the bobbin to the spool :wink:

The quilt top looks great, I think the red binding would look fab. I used 2" strips to bind the quilts I made.

These tutorials are really helpful

Thanks Karen love the 2 colour idea, will have a play! Tutorials look great and it looks like I don't need to actually make bias binding!

Quilting started and going OK I'm not finding my walking foot as accurate but I'm pretty sure I need to using it for overall better finish. Pics when I get a bit further on!

It looks fab Tory. I really wanted to make one for DD but never found the time, maybe I'll manage one for DS instead.
