Today is our last day with this marvelous moose! Hope you have had fun making your own or just following along as I created moose magic with Banyan Batiks Alilah.
To get started you will need your backing and binding fabric. I chose a red and white Banyan Batiks Alilah for the backing and hanging sleeve and one of the fabulous orange batiks for the binding.
I wanted the binding in this table runner not to stand out, because the Moose is the star of the show.
Cut your binding at 2½” wide by approximately 120″ long.
Follow this link for my instructions on adding binding from one of my previous QUILTsocial posts.
When you’re done with the binding, add a hanging sleeve to attach to the back of the quilt if you would like a perfect wallhanging for your cabin or cottage. If you decide to attach a hanging sleeve, cut a piece from the backing or binding fabric that measures 4″ x 36″.
Next, make a double fold at each end of the sleeve and stitch to finish the ends.
Then fold up the bottom edge of the hanging sleeve about ½”.
See this my previous post, A sleeve and the binding, and the May Flowers wallhanging is done!, if you want more details on making a hanging sleeve.
Thank you for following along with this project.
If you love the design, it would be simple to add maple leaf blocks to make it into a larger wallhanging or even an adorable baby quilt! And don’t forget to check out other colorways you can use within Banyan Batiks Alilah, and the many other mesmerizing Banyan Batiks Collections that can make this table runner even more whimsical.
Until next time…
