Yes, I do need a bigger design wall. Notice that I have the upper right hand taped to the door! It feels really good to have this top done. When I started it, I of course planned to hand quilt it. Back then, I wasn't any good at machine quilting and thought real quilts were hand quilted. Now I can do machine quilting, but this is such a traditional quilt that I think it needs hand quilting. On the other hand, I really don't want to spend months more working on this quilt so I will probably end up machining it. I'm a little stumped on how to quilt it too.
I did mitered corners on the outer border because I thought it would look funny since it's such a directional print. I had to cut the fabric cross grain so I took some care in piecing the two pieces for each side. I had dreams of matching up the designs in the miter, but that really didn't work out too well and it was more work than I wanted to do. I do kind of wish I had taken the time though since I'd never done that before.
Anyway, another top off my to do list and onto my quilting list! I need to start quilting really, really soon as I have way to many quilts on that list.
