Color wheel circle quilt completed!

imageI finished my color wheel quilt.  I have enjoyed making this quilt and trying out new techniques for each of the squares.  It has been fun playing with color.  There are 5 openings in the quilt.  imageI added  yarn and beads to some of the openings in the quilt.  I also made narrow strips of some dyed silk fabric to use in another opening. imageimage I used a piece of burnt purple batting to dangle at the bottom of the quilt.

For the binding, I used yarn – 3 strands of yarn on the front and back of the quilt edges.  Using an open toe foot on the sewing machine, I stitched 3 strands of yarn on the back of the quilt first – using a honeycomb stitch (length = 3.0, width = maximum width for your machine). Then stitched 3 strands of yarn to the front edges.  I used black yarn and black thread.  To watch a video of this technique, check out this website: http.//thequiltshow.com/learn.bernina/video/latest/alternative-edge-treatments.

Keep having fun sewing and quilting.  Donna
