String Theory Quilt
I'm glad I squared the corners of the quilt as I put on the binding. The quilt hangs flat and true. I hung it up on Wednesday so I could admire it from my desk. It is a bright and sunny piece! The circle quilting came out better than I had imagined. I'm breaking out of my stitch-in-the-ditch routine. I've done a few projects with some straight-line quilting, but this was my first attempt at curves and not following along the pieced pattern. I am so pleased with the results.
I bound it with a mix of white and neutrals. It mixes in well with the background. I had feared a solid color, even white, would stand out.
For a brief moment, I considered keeping the quilt. I can name most of the other quilts and projects all the material came from. Part of what I like about the quilt is the memories of those other quilts. But I have promised String Theory to the Rehoboth contra dance, which is kind of exciting. Besides, I want something slightly smaller to hang on my wall. Hmm... need to add that to my project backlog.
Linking up with Linky Tuesday.
