So happy to have it all bound, I used the light floral and it turned out nicely, not too dark or light or too bright, it blends but still provides a frame for the borders.
Final measurements are 114"x118", enough for a pillow tuck. Very hard to photograph because of the size, even hoisted up as high as the pulley will go still it drapes on the floor.
The center is freehand Edge to Edge feathers…………….
the borders freehand feathering, pebbling and a piano key quilting on the very edge.
The backing is a medium grey, now I wonder if it would have been better to use a grey in the bobbin.
This is a utility quilt, it will be on their bed 365 days a year so I chose not to quilt very small and make it stiff, I prefer a bit of drapiness in a quilt that will be used.
