I tried my hand at freehand quilting and really enjoyed it once I got the hang of it. It definitely takes some practice, but it was really relaxing and I love the way it turns out. For the sashing I used a wonderfully soft cotton/linen blend found on Sew Mama Sew.
For the binding I used a vintage sheet that matched just about perfectly. I was unsure of what color to go with when a friend said "I was thinking yellow!". Done. (Thanks Kristen!)
