The Binding is Still Due...

But the rest of the quilt is coming closer to being finished. I'm still pondering if I should mark all the crossings on the reverse with the 45°-angle positioned squares, as I have done on the front side. It just means that these spots will consist of up to 10 layers of fabric... I'm also thinking of a surprise binding; so there might be something coming for your pleasure. Hopefully.
The reverse color distribution is mere serendipity. I arranged the front tiles and later looked at the reverse. It was beyond control.

Sewing the bridges was a lot of work, and I pricked my fingers a few times, as I tried to stitch the bridges which were in the middle part. But sewing stripes of tiles would have meant to arrange the tiles already, and I preferred to be free in my choice till close to the end.

Oh my, is it the same quilt? Both sides should be in a museum. Such a joyous celebration of color!

It is as beautiful from the back as from the front! What a marvelous peace Eva, so creative and artful, and made with so much labor and diligence!

I cannot decide which side I love more. Beautiful how you choose and arrange the colors. Really great work.
