I was ready for the quilting and binding just as I got my new sewing machine so, of course, I had to try it out. All of the quilting is done with bright yellow thread in the ditch. The ends are all outlined around the yellow pieces. Then both long strips are stitched between the colors. The center is quilted in a grid through all the diamonds in both horizontal and vertical directions.
I also got to machine stitch the binding - LIKE!
Then I learned how to use the fancy stitches for lettering and used that for the quilt label. I stitched with yellow on a piece of fabric to match the backing then pressed it and attached it with Steam-a-Seam2.
Much more to learn on my sewing machine but this was a great start.
