OK. Flowerburst is finished.
I got the binding on after Colleen quilted it and now it is done.
The binding fabric was a terrible choice. I bought it because it was 54″ wide or something. It frayed too much and was too loosely woven. I sincerely disliked it. I have to think more carefully about decisions and not just focus on how wide the fabric is.
The quilt turned out well. I like the juxtaposition between the flowers in the stars and the grey background. It isn’t perfect, but it is very nice. I really like the way the big blowsy flowers are showcased in the large pieces. I should do more with the Philip Jacobs fabrics on the front.
The back is pretty great, though. I love the big amounts of Philip Jacobs yardage.
I am thrilled with how this came out. Yes, this is one of the niece-phews quilts. I can’t wait to see what my niece thinks.
