Texture

I completed quilting my EBDQS quilt tonight, and have been fondling it ever since; it has such great texture.


These peeks aren't the best colour, but it actually came out brighter than I feared it might, and the fabric is a crisp white.


The dense quilting (the lines average at under 1/8in apart over the whole quilt) shrunk the quilt considerably; the blocks started at 8in, and finished at 7 5/8in.


I'm now dithering over binding options; I don't want anything which will overpower the quilting, but I do want to frame it effectively.

I cannot get over this quilting. It is breathtaking!

I think I might consider a very thin, plain black binding.
