Here is a picture of the finished quilt, now titled "Blended Morn." I don't think you can see the hand writing very well in this picture of in any of the others, but it is Maya Angelou's "On the Pulse of Morning." Actually, it's not meant to be seen that well. It is just one of many elements in the quilt. The poem has "rock, river and tree" as central theme and symbols. I used those ideas in the quilting.
I felt like I really needed to get copyright permission for this if I intend to show or sell it. So, I filled out all the forms for that today and will mail if off tomorrow. (The don't take electronic permission requests.)
I was really pleased with the binding. I saw a wonderful exhibit of Susan Carlson's quilts and noticed that she just used scraps of all widths length colors and sizes and just folded them over one on top of the next. Since my pieces were already fuse-ready, this worked perfectly.
I even sewed the sleeve on tonight, so I may go get a dowel tomorrow and actually hang it. Yeah. I'm going to wait for the copyright permission to do the label.
