Well, the first day of the trail saw me stitching on the binding, but I managed to finish that and get a sleeve on it and it was on display on the second day. I added some colour and a bit more stitching to the woman to give her more depth and make her more part of the whole image rather than just 'on top'. I also added a bit more to the bird above her head. And it's always amazing how finishes the edges makes it look so much better.
The colour of the binding was a hard choice. I auditioned many before I went with this tan colour. It was a serendipitous choice, it just happened to fall next to the quilt when I was looking through my purple and pink hand dyes. I really liked how it complemented the blues and purples rather than blended with them. And the dark grey/blacks I'd tried just looked flat, so tan it was.
But, and it's a really big but.
I'm thinking of taking my rotary cutter to it.
The question is, do I like it better than the finished quilt as it is now?
So what do you think?
Chop, or not?
