A Finish and an Audition


I put the binding on this one today. I just sewed it to the back and zigzaged it down on the front. It's quite small but would do for a couch quilt. I may donate this one as well.


A few people suggested doing this one without sashing so I thought I'd give it a whirl. I think I will go with sashing now that I see it without. Putting it up on the design wall this way did help with the block arrangement. I saw a few that looked out of place when they were touching. Right now I am dyeing some fabric, hopefully dark gray. I haven't washed it out yet so I'm not sure how dark it will be. I also tried a dark blue with stars that looked very nice but unfortunately I only had a very small piece of it.

It looks like a cosmic explosion arranged this way. I think it needs sashing.

Yes it does look like a cosmic explosion and I don't think it needs sashing, but who am I to say :-)

I'm with Clare: I think that sashing would only detract from the wonderful visual impact of this piece! Are these fabrics snow-dyed? Lovely!!!

I admire you for taking on dying fabric. After a college class in fabric, I don't think I'll ever deal with the mess again. I agree that the sashing will set off the colors without destroying the explosion effect.

I think it is very cool just like you have it there!

The finish is great. I am glad I don't have to make any of the decisions you are facing! With sashing, without....I'm sure you will choose wisely! I just love your dyeing!

Ah...I've been wondering if you were having fun with all of this snow, doing your snow dyes. You have! *When life hands you lemons....* ;-)
