First, I couldn't decide on a border. My preference is to add a border to my quilts as IMHO it frames the quilt. There were a couple ideas in mind which are not worthy of elaborating. Finally, it occurred to me that the R&W did not need a border as it is more of a contemporary-style quilt. All it needs is a nice binding which is To Be Determined ;-) after being quilted. Today's slow stitching project will be hand basting.
In preparation, I realized that I have not yet trimmed the loose threads. Uh....there are many errant reds from all the border style auditions and lounging around ;-) Fortunately, February's weather is cooperating and we have had a couple nice sunny days.
Perfect when the winter sun shines on the kitchen table for easy-to-spot loose threads. Heaven forbid a naughty red thread should show through the white squares.
Lucky me, I have an extra pair of eyes ;-)
If Mittens is too helpful, I may have to switch over to London stitching which I started last week. It's a pleasure to do detailed work when the best light is natural and provided by God. Less eye strain!
Thanks for stopping by as I very much enjoy Slow Sunday Stitching with Kathy and you all!
