Here is a link to my February reading...
This piece is what I'm working on (sort of) at the moment. It is 11.25 x 25.25 - my measurements are always weird because I just cut fabric "about the length I want" then go on from there. I round off anything less than 1/4 inch.
The borders at top and bottom are sewn on, but everything else is fused raw edge. I wanted to try doing without the binding and keep a raw edge, so after quilting, I trimmed backing and batting down. The quilting is just straight down the sides with grids in corners.
Over the last week or so, I've put it back on the design board, and waited until deciding what to do next. And the grids needed to help lift the piece from blandness - so, French knots.
Not enough, added red rectangles. And copper dots.
And am considering something like this.
