Solstice Dream - Finished
Yes it is finished. The fabulous custom quilting was done by my friend Leeanne of Quiltmekiwi. She has done a wonderful job, and I hope she had fun creating all the swoops and swirls and feathery flourishes. She also quilted my sister's version and that will be winging it's way to Brisbane this week with our Mum, ready for her to finish.
After much deliberation I chose a Brandon Mably print, called Victoria Stripe Hot for the binding. I was besieged by doubt about my fabric choice as I started hand stitching it down, thinking it too bright, but I am happy with it now it is finished.
Well the binding has been put on, the hanging rods in place and Solstice Dream has now replaced Bird Dance on the wall in my Family room.
