I was determined to get this quilt quilted yesterday. I basted it about the 3rd week of January and it has been draped over the bars of my longarm ever since. I quilted it on my Babylock straight stitch machine. Three sessions spread out over the day was the right way to tackle it. I have trimmed it so it is ready for binding.
I tried several reds for binding but the border fabric has a rust background with red in the print and I couldn't find anything I liked with it. My next thought was a purple but then I saw this green and I like it with both the front and the back. I'll made a final decision this morning and get it done.
