How to Make a Blue Chip Chair Day 6

At last, day 6 arrives and the How to Make a Blue Chip Chair quilt top is complete! Time for stitching.

But first place the quilt top onto batting and a backing fabric cut to size. Now this is important: Steam set the quilt top for 10 seconds all across the surface using a dry pressing cloth. This will set the glue.
Once the quilt sandwich is in place, drop the feeddogs on your sewing machine, attach a free-motion foot and begin stitching the quilt sandwich. Start in the center of the quilt and work your way out.

Use your favorite threads and your favorite patterns. Mine happens to be the MEMEME pattern (cause it's all about me). Bind the quilt in any fashion you like. This quilt below has a faced binding.
Thank you for joining me in the How to Make a Blue Chip Chair marathon! May your edges be free yet stuck for ages!

Wonderful finish. I was doing free motion yesterday and making a mess, think I need to practice on some smaller pieces.
