Binding across America

I had always wanted to take a cross country trip and last week I finally got my chance. I flew from NYC to Chicago, taking in the sights for a few days (with a quick stop by the awesome @oakfabrics - I'll have a little video tour up once I edit it together 😊) then boarded the California Zephyr (Amtrak train) and took it all the way to San Francisco. I had planned to prep a bunch of my #mischiefquilt by @karenthediyaddict blocks for the trip because I thought EPP across America had such a nice ring to it 🤣 but alas all my trip prep left me with too little time so I figured why not bind this beauty while taking in the sights from the train and I'm so happy I did. 🚉
She uses 52 @artgalleryfabrics prints and I couldn't be more over the moon 🌙 with how her scrappy white binding turned out.
It's hard to see in the picture but I'll be sure to find a closeup of it and post it to my blog/stories sometime soon. Thank you guys for all the input on helping me settle on the choice. I'm so happy with scrappy whites as they give it a fun little detail without drawing the eye away from the center ring. I've got one last photo to share of this quilt I took among the beautiful redwoods in California but figured I would save that for another post as I struggled to narrow it down to just these 10 photos. I wanted to show you the beautiful views from the train while I bound my girl.
I'm loving seeing everyone's Chuckles 🐠 blocks from our #keatonsawesomeSAL Awesome Ocean Sew-a-long! 🐟🐙🐚🐋🐡 This is week one so if you haven't joined in yet you've still got plenty of time! I'll share my 2 Chuckles on the denim background later this week.
I've also got a big giveaway coming up you won't want to miss and the reveal of my pattern that will be featured in the next @quiltersplanner so keep an eye out for that! Pre orders for next year's planner are live so reserve your copy today!
I hope everyone is having a great week!
