No more pebbles!
I finished all of the pebbling this weekend. It took a lot of sessions but once I had a rhythm going it really didn't talk all that long.....not that I accomplished much else all weekend.I do love the effect and I'm really good at the swirly pebbles now.
So, now that the pebbles were done it was time to bring it upstairs to see what else it needs. I really hadn't intended to invest this much time into it but in for a penny, in for a pound.
You can see in the first photo that I need to add something else to the green spikes ad the pale border needs something too. It's too wrinkly now that the pebbles drew in the fabric so much.
I also needed to bring it up to see it this way to decide how I want to bind it. I"m considering a piped binding and originally thought orange but I'm now leaning to the pale mottled fabric. I need to decide by Wednesday morning because whatever I choose has to be dyed.
I also need to add a little to my pale stars. You can't see it very well on this photo but those 2 open half circle spaces are way too puffy.
I don't think I'll have any problem getting this done by the end of the month. I never intended to show this quilt when I started it but I may enter it now that I've put so much work into it.
Time to get off the computer and back to quilting!

Can't wait to see this in person!
According to the 'rule of uneven numbers' (whoever invented that one I haven't a clue)...considering the question of what colour to use for binding....my vote is for the orange. Reason? The starburst in the middle and the 'spikes' are orange but that's just two. So a 'three' would/could be the binding. And what do I know anyway??!

I vote for the color of the pale stars. From the photo it looks to be the same as the thin border on the square on point. As it would meet at the points, it would add a nice secondary design while remaining subtle. I think it would not draw the eye away from the design as much as the brighter orange would.
