Here is the quilt top completed. I added a very narrow white border and then a fun 4" outer border.
Here are the strips I cut for the binding. I cut them on a diagonal at 2-1/4" wide. I will sew all the strips together and use the strip to bind the quilt.
A close-up of the binding strips next to the quilt (on the left), just to get an idea of what it will look like.
