Flooded Fields Landscape Ready for Binding
This afternoon I have finished the foreground of the landscape...
...just filling in in front of the wall with muddy water with the tops of a few plants poking up.
Then when I looked at the overall effect I was very irritated by the fact that the clouds were right at the top edge and would be chopped off by the binding. This post a little while ago shows how the raw edge is just a fraction of an inch above the top of the clouds.
The solution was to slice off a little of the unquilted fabric from the bottom and lay it over the wadding at the top and quilt over the raw edges - easy to spot if you look closely, but fairly unobtrusive from the opposite side of the room.
Now I have to think about how I am going to bind it. I already have a few ideas for the next landscape, and this time I might plan it a little better.
