Oh my stars
A few weeks ago I mentioned that I was going to get to quilt this on a long arm quilting machine myself. Well, my long arm quilter recently acquired a computerized quilting machine in addition to his regular one. He convinced me to load this onto that machine and let it do it's magic.
Can you see the stars and loops? They are easier to see on the solid gray back.
Now I'm faced with a dilemma on the binding. I have fabric left over from the pieced stars on front that I could make a scrappy binding with. But, like I spout over on The Learning Center, I want the binding to be the perfect finishing touch on this quilt. So, should I be frugal and use what I have? Or, buy more yardage of the specific print I want to use as binding?
And, this is what my ornery dogs do while I hang a quilt on the line and take photos of it. Three guesses how long it took me to get them back inside.
