Yesterday, I talked about quilting the background of the Flower Field quilt, leaving it at this stage…..
Now I needed to figure out how to finish the edges of the quilt. I debated about adding a border to the final quilt but quickly decided that it didn’t need it.
It was time to square up the quilt and I used my laser Square…..
I was surprised about how much the fabric had shifted and skewed during the surface design process.
After it was squared up….
….I had to decide how to finish the quilt edges.
I would have preferred to simply face the quilt but I was afraid that having all of the dimensional stuff along the edges would mean that a facing wouldn’t have turned well.
In the end, I added binding but matched two separate binding fabrics to the top and bottom so that it wasn’t as noticeable. This was a great compromise to facing the quilt.
At long last, the experiment was finished!!…….
It was such a fun process and I look forward to trying something like this again really soon!!!
Now I just have to find a name for the quilt……

Love your piece and how you chose to make the binding. I saw a Sunny Meadow …. possibly a name?
I like the idea of the word “Sunny” in the title!! Thanks.
You have done a stellar job. This is such a lovely, summery fun quiltet! I luv this kind of art quilting!
Thanks Elle. I haven’t done a lot of this type of work but I could get addicted to it!!!
I guess I also thought Sunny Meadow, but can you think of a field you know of that would suit? That would personalize it more. It really is a beauty.
That is a great idea Susan. It would be fun to make it more personal!!
Field of Flowers
I have thought of that too Jean. Thanks!!
