Default Art Quilt

This is a quilt I have been working on this week. Haven't decided what to do about binding. May not, I may just leave it unfinished.

Have you ever couched yarn on the edge with a zigzag stitch.

Have you thought about facing it instead of binding. It would be easier and give a nice finished edge. Very nice art quilt by the way.

Deb, I have couched yarn on post cards and that's all, but that is a good idea. I got carried away and have made several post cards out of the scraps, will try the yarn on one of those first. I am working on the backing, should be finished today.

Love the uniqueness of this quilt. I don't think a binding would work unless maybe thin black or gray. But I don't know what to do in it's place. Keep us posted with the final decision!
