It’s a subtle effect but I took the same striped dark green fabric and made bias binding out of it so that you’d have the stripes on the diagonal. I’m not entirely sure I like bias binding. It’s got a bit of a tendency to stretch differently on the front and back and I’m a bit concerned that over time, there will be diagonal folds. It not doing it right now but I can see the tendency.
DH says the “A” is a bit goofy (remember, the quilt is for my friend Ann) and I guess it is but the backing had to be made wider and it did fit after these stripes were added.
The detail shows that I used my leaves pattern. My friend lives in a log cabin deep in the Québec woods. Leaves is very appropriate for her.
