Well it is cleaned, trimmed and hanging on the wall. Just a note that it is really long 5'10" x 1'7" wide. The photo to the left is a panoramic I made with a new program that I could not figure out how to keep the squareness of the quilt. So the top is square in real life.
I love how it turned out. Very organic. I had intended to follow a scene or progression from sky to ocean bottom. So hopefully with a little imagination the concept was achieved.
Sun set to mountains as in detail 1.
Mountains to foothills a (detail 2) to pastures to shoreline (detail 3). Then to fish in the sea to the oceans sea bottom (detail 4).
I loaded the quilt back on the longarm to add a narrow thread border in order to keep the edges flowing and to try not make the quilt look rectangular. But after having it on the wall for a few days have decided that something is missing. I'm thinking it needs a branch to hang off or something to add detail to the top of the quilt.
Any suggestions or comments on whether or not to add a binding for the border or if you think a creative branch would solve the problem. Thanks, tg.
