On Monday, I finished quilting the background of the fox wholecloth quilt and I buried all the last threads. I squared the quilt on Christmas morning and spent Christmas afternoon starting to bind the quilt. On Wednesday, I was able to put the finishing hand stitches on the binding.
I used a laser square and tape to help get mark the quilt square before cutting any of the edges. This really helps me know I am cutting the quilt the best I can and keeps me from worrying if there are areas that need more trim. In this case the sides were not very even so I had to trim them a little bit more than I expected. Overall, the quilt is 67 1/2-inches wide by 92-inches long, which is still a huge quilt for the bed we will have in Wabi-Sabi Overland!
My husband and I really love how the dense matchstick quilting creates just the slightest sense of perspective hinting at earth and sky. I bound the quilt using Kona Cotton in Ocean, and I made sure to get one of my Quilting Jetgirl tags stitched in, too. I took a day off yesterday and put together a 1,000 piece puzzle. I plan to start working on the quilting detail on the foxes this afternoon.
