FFFC #49 Complete
Here is the quilted version of Cloister. Overall I'm happy with it, considering it's my first real art quilt, and my first attempt to work from a photograph. I really wanted to try to incorporate some of the great suggestions in the critiques, but I also knew I could dicker around with it forever, so in the spirit of Fast FFC, I set tonight as my deadline. I think the quilting lines improved it, but I thought there were too many lines, and they were overcoming the small piece, so I didn't do any quilting in the central tan area. I used a pillowcase binding/backing because it was quick and unobtrusive, but I'm not happy about the lumpy corners. But it's done and I'm ready for the next challenge!
