Take it Further Challenge--March
Well, I got the top done for the Take it Further Challenge for March. Yes, the edges are supposed to be wavy and crooked! It is called "After Dark" because of the black fabric representing night, and also because I usually work on my quilting/ art between 11pm-12am.
I am trying to decide if I will do a traditional binding, or if I should "birth" the quilt to keep the wavy edge and not show a binding. I really hate birthing, and wouldn't be able to quilt it on my longarm machine if I did it that way, so I'm leaning toward a traditional binding. Hope to quilt it soon. Confession: do you know that I have about 40 quilt tops that need to be quilted? I am trying to quilt one per month, but at that rate it will take years to get through them all, and not including making more. So, I hope to keep my momentum on this project and see it finished soon.
