More quilting……..

I did the ditch quilting on Wonky 3 (must come up with a better name) yesterday.  That is all it needs so a decision on trimming the edges is next.  If I trim the edges straight I can use straight of grain binding.  If I leave it crooked I’ll have to use bias binding.  I’m going out socializing this morning so I won’t make the decision until afternoon.  This is number 3 of the 6 that I need done by the 22nd.  I need to start getting the bindings sewn on so I don’t have all 6 to do at once.

  1. The wavy edges would make an element of interest. The issue then is will it hang flat. I find I can't get curved or wavy edges to drape nicely. Hope you can solve the problem. Have fun on your outing. Chris

  2. I like facings on wavy edges. Having said that, I much prefer to add bindings than facings :).BTW, I wrote to you a while back asking about your studio cutter. I finally got mine for Christmas and I love it! Thanks for your help.Katysew4given AT aol DOT com

  3. It looks like a wonderful, Magic Carpet flying in the clouds or laying on white sand. The one that belonged to Jasmine and Aladdin. If you feel it needs to be a rectangle quilt to hang properly, I suppose you could sew on a border and cut the boarder's edges straight, emphasize the movement created by the wonky strips. Just some thoughts. It's a beautiful piece of art and I LOVE it! Makes me smile, inspires dreams.

  4. I am not going to add my "2 cents" because you always know best how to finish your designs. A very pretty piece and Elaine M commented "wandering path" look. Now I do like that for a different name. J~MT

  5. For what it's worth I think you should leave then wonky. But then, I'm not the one who's going to be cutting a lot of bias binding 🙂 Great quilt! I love the colors.

  6. I love this piece. Straightening the edges or leaving them wonky will both work. Think I would straighten the edges to add a new dimension to its wonkiness; which I love.

  7. I'd add a wider outer border–same fabric on all four sides–the effect would be like a frame around an irregularly-shaped design (in this case, the center of the quilt).

  8. I think it would be sad to straighten up the edges on that beautiful thing.Thought I'd let you know, I made a small quilt using the colorwash kit I got from you; it's posted at my blog today. Thanks for the inspiration. I have a ways to go, but it was fun.
