Executive Woobie Finished
I've finished 1 quilt since October and now 3 this week. I guess that makes sense given my 6-8 quilts per year average and the fact that at any given time I have about 20 projects part-way finished.
You can read about the evolution of the project here: washing the ties, making pinwheels, hating the border, coming up with a solution, and using the leftovers.
I trimmed the fleece to 5/8" from the edge then flipped it over the edge and stitched the raw edge down.
Because of the stretch in the fleece and using cotton thread the top did not stay flat at all. If you click to enlarge the first picture, you can really see how the pinwheels bunched up. I actually quite like that. It picks up more of the sheen of the silk. And I'll just ignore the wobbliness of the edges.
