I like to stitch my binding on first, then trim away the extra batting and backing.
This quilt is large--super queen size--it barely fits in the room, which is why the edges look wavy--they aren't! I machine stitched the binding down; the clips were to mark where I missed catching the edge and had to go back and put in a few hand stitches on the back.
The sharp angles are complemented by rounded and organic shapes for the quilting. The ginkgo, being one of the oldest species of tree on the planet, are a repeating theme in the fabrics and quilting to represent my wishes for a long and happy married life for Elaine and Chris.
I decided against quilting in the outer border. Somehow it felt more in keeping with the modern design.
Two different flannels for the backing and Dream Green polyester batting help make this one heavy quilt. I'll be pleased to see it on their bed and not my design floor any more! See more design walls on Judy's Patchwork Times.
