I have finally finished the quilting on the Sunflower Wall Quilt. It has been a long haul ... broken by frequent breaks for my back ... and constant quilty kitty "help" by Ms Katniss.
Way to take over, cat ...
I have trimmed ... with a lot of helping and inspecting ...
... and am ready to bind!
The original pattern called for teal and I cut these strips when I cut the quilt. Now I am not sure it is right for "my" quilt. I have seen one of these quilts with the teal binding and it was okay. It does intensify the colors but I am not sure it frames well. I auditioned brown, too, and my hubby said "brown" but he did comment that it made the quilt look smaller. So I pulled that out of consideration. The brown was a good frame. Hmmmm ??? I am a yellow person so I am leaning toward the yellow. It does seem to frame it nicely without dulling the colors and it echoes the inner border. Hmmmmm ???
Opinions anyone ??????????
I have to put this aside while I decide and make the rest of my signature blocks and get them in the mail.
Pepper is coming for a "play day" so maybe Katniss will be otherwise occupied and I will get my blocks done.
