See that bright pink outer border? Do I leave it blank and fill it with quilting or do I put something in it? I have pinned some leaves up to try and help me decide.
In the meantime I decided this would be a good opportunity to sew up the background for another art quilt.
If that looks like a map to you, then you are right. I have printed a map onto fabric and have a very wild 3D embellishment to put on. I usually quilt my art quilts first before adding the embellishments as they are often too bulky to try and quilt around. I enjoy that process, as when the embellishments are added, the quilt is already bound and quilted! Makes me feel like I have skipped a step.
