Just the Binding to Do


This morning I quilted the kaleidoscope. I have been waiting until I found/made a back that I liked.


Here is the back. It is a strip of the original Japanese fabric and two strips of hand dyed fabric. I have been practising on fat quarters until I found a color that is close to one of the pinks in the original fabric. I think I got fairly close.

Your hand-dyed goes really well with your print...
Have a good Easter with your family... 8-)

That is perfect backing for your quilt.

Absolutely striking. A piece of ART. Your choice of backing, Japanese print and dyed complement, is so right. I missed your start so I went back to your original entry. Oh to have a permanent design wall.
