Not sure what prompted this renewed energy to resume working on this UFO, but I promptly took it down and started pulling out fabrics to audition for possible borders. After auditioning more than 10 different fabrics and not thrilled about any of the combinations, I questioned whether the quilt even needed borders. I dug out the original pattern ripped out years ago, and realized the pattern never called for any borders. So this settled it...no borders! But I was able to use some of those pulled fabrics for the backing and binding...and set to work layering/basting the quilt and working out a plan for quilting. I kept it simple and did a series of lines that created stars at each intersection.
I especially love the binding...its truly a magical fabric that appears to be glowing and radiating around all four sides. It especially pops against the bright green backing fabric.
I finished the last few binding stitches this morning, and was able to capture some pictures at work during my lunch break inside one of the dog parks.
After 4-5 years, I am happy to say this quilt is quilted and complete! Woo hoo!
What's black, white and bright?!? You're next...on my UFO tackle list!
