It's really interesting to see how she has chosen to quilt her Maritime Beauty, and her application of binding by machine looks flawless. For me personally, I love the opportunity to stitch the binding to the back by hand. It gives a final few minutes to connect to the piece, hold it in my hand and enjoy the colours and design up close and personal - a treasured haptic moment.

Terrific work Gail, and thanks for sharing. Eventually this picture will be added to the Sew and Tell page of my website. Many from the day in Keswick Ridge have emailed that they've finished their Beauties but Gail's pictures are the first proof. C'mon girls: we want to see them!
