Finished Quilting

I finished the quilting on my second texture piece yesterday.  I trimmed it and it is amazingly very square.  Now I'm ready for the painting, but first I have to decide if I want to bind it first and also paint the binding.  Or perhaps I should paint it and them bind it, as I did on the other painted quilt.  Or do I want to face it after the painting?  I have three art quilt meetings in the next three days where I will bring it unpainted for Show and Tell, then I will decide what to do. It's hard to see all the quilting that I've done.  Check out the photos below.

A couple of my FiberWorks members said that I should leave it as it is, that the visual texture of the fabric and the tactile texture of the quilting is enough, but I still want to paint it and I will.

Love the quilting. I've used regular wall paint because of the coverage, I figure for a wall quilt stiff is better.

Congratulations on your entries going to Houston! I'd send you some apricots to celebrate with but I don't think they'd make it.

The varied quilting is wonderful. If you do paint it, please post a photo.

Ooooo, I think painting it will make the quilting pop! I can't wait to see it.

Congratulations, by the way, on Houston.

I really do love this piece and I say paint it... but not all over since the colors underneath are gorgeous, too! Can't wait to see how it turns out!
