It went from this...
After it's blocked, those wavy edges will be flat, at least for the most part. If I squared and trimmed it at this stage, even binding wouldn't flatten the edges.
After binding it, I'll take a straight-on photo.
Also, two quilt backs were pieced for the Center for Women and Families, and I hope to have those quilts finished in the next month, for a total of 4 quilts.
And in the meantime, the urge struck me to do something with these batik snowflake blocks I had cut out a few weeks ago. (The blocks are very much overlapped here because my design wall is too small. The quilt will be 44 x 60.)
The blue/gray/green/white batik was in my stash, and coordinates beautifully with the snowflake blocks. But let's face it: at this point, the quilt top does not look like something you'd want to curl up under. It looks flat-out cold. I'm not a 'red' person, hence there was nothing in my stash to warm this up (except orange or gold--both of which looked all wrong for a winter quilt). A couple of yards of a warm-red batik are now on order.
Have a great weekend!
