In a recent post here, I referred to the difficulty I had finding the right fabric to feature in this block.Once I uncovered the Dutch Wax fabric lurking in my stash I 'thought' I was up and running. However I wasn't happy with how that fabric worked using the original planned setting. Not only were some of the blocks remade to relocate the placement of the sashings, I also decided more blocks were needed.
Ultimately I opted to create a wider quilt. My work generally measures longer than wide. Yet since I sell my work, it seemed like a good idea to also offer some work that would fit nicely over a small couch or low cabinet/table.
I struggled with how to finish the edges, but thanks to input from members of the Professional Textile Artists group the answer became clear. A traditional narrow binding is highlighted with a very narrow flange. My attempts to get a good photo of this quilt have been fruitless....below is the best I've managed so far!
