Thanks for the comments on my last post. They were helpful. If you have other ideas or thoughts or just haven’t commented, please keep the comments coming. As promised, here are some pics of the quilt now that I’m nearing the binding phase. I spent some time working on the quilt again last night and am feeling a bit stuck. It’s amazing to me how something as plain and simple as a solid colored binding can really change the color of the quilt. As you can see above, I’m deciding between a dark grey (which I think is more in keeping with the blocks on the front of the quilt) and a bright grass green (which I think brightens up the front of the quilt but is more in keeping with the brighter colors on the backing print). Sorry no picture of the fully pieced back but this Anna Maria Horner print is what predominates. Your thoughts?? Grey or green??
The other dilemma is the quilting. I still SUCK at free motion quilting so I opted for boring old straight lines, knowing that I wanted to get this poor, neglected quilt done sometime this year. I was originally opting for a diagonal criss-cross grid but now that I’ve finished the lines in one direction, I also kinda like it like this. Your thoughts?
Thanks in advance!
