Patriotic Fields is what I'm calling this. I attached my binding ahead of finishing the quilting to avoid all those ratty edges from handling. Rule breaking, I know!
I've been using my Beam and Read light while propped up in bed, and some nights I only get a few stitches in before it's time to turn the lights out. A few more hours of work are left, I think. Let's just call this utility quilting, as my stitches are not close and tiny. I'm considering carrying the lines across the background out into the wider border, and just stitching in the ditch next to the red border. Opinions?
