After sewing on the green binding on the ginkgo quilt, I put it up on my design wall to just make sure this was the look I wanted before doing the hand sewing involved.

What do you think? Keep the green binding or go with a black satin stitched binding? I’m leaning toward the black satin stitched binding because I think the matte quality of the present binding competes with the luminescence of the body of the quilt.

In the mean time, I have been working on birds for the swap project I’m doing online. I needed 40 birds to complete four sets. Three sets to swap, and one to keep for myself. I am also doing a bookmark swap with the same group. I’ll cut the bookmarks from the scraps of stitch paper I put together a couple of nights ago.

  1. This is a great photo. Such color and variety you got in your birds. Like you, I love stitching the pieces in a crazy-pieced fashion. I can hardly throw away even the tiniest of scraps. That is going to have to change! Have a good weekend. Nancy
