I washed up the quilts and I'll be taking them today. The rippling in the outer border is all gone. The photo is showing the doorknob. I was so intent on checking for straight and everything I forgot that doorknob. But I'm pleased and so very glad I paused and rethought that binding. I hated to use up that fabric for a tiny binding but it was the very best choice.
This is probably more vibrant and the quilting is a bit more exciting than it looks.
I'm so thrilled to be getting stuff out of the closet, under the machine and off to serve its purpose.
