All that is left to do is the binding. I mulled over whether or not to hand quilt this piece, then decided on machine. My hand quilting is not really very good. I wanted to play with line and form for the quilting. I did the lines first, then the groups of circles. It still felt unfinished, so I selected three small sections to do small stippling. I am thinking a red binding would work well, but I will sleep on it and see if I still like the idea.
This has been a very interesting challenge. I have gained a new appreciation for solids watching all the wonderful creations appear here. My husband is very sad I am sending this one off. I may have to find another painting to interpret for him so he is not so sad.
