Wrangling fabric

This queen-size Positive quilt is finished.  The is the quilt I made as a sample, to be sure I had the measurements correct, for a commissioned quilt.  You can read about that quilt here, if you're interested.

Putting binding on a queen-size quilt, is really wrangling fabric!  We used  the Simple Feathers design and while thread for the quilting.

For the quilt back, I used a wide-back dots fabric that coordinated perfectly with the quilt top.  The finished size is 86.25 x 95 inches.

I had a heck of a time choosing a fabric for the binding.  All of the fabrics from the quilt top were pretty much depleted, the small white dot on aqua was the largest remnant, and it was almost enough.  I sneaked in a bit of striped fabric, in order to have enough to go around.

One final photo of the quilt, taken down by the tennis courts.  Some bokeh sneaked in!

May your bobbins always be full,
