Dragon and Tiger wall hanging

The new sewing machine has gotten me back into quilting :).


I took today off work to stay home and sew. Pulled out a couple of wall hangings I started years ago when I first opened my dojo in San Jose. For years one of these quilt print wall hangings was up in the dojo, unbound. They are now both bound and complete.

Normally I piece the binding strips together on a 45° angle to minimize the bulge (a wear point) and maximize strength. However, this is a wall hanging that will not see any wear on the edges so I did straight seams and butterflied them (folded away from each other); the seams lay flat and are not noticed.
