Binding for Yellowstone Valley

Time to put a binding on the Yellowstone Valley piece. I had some naturally dyed raw silk left over from the body of the quilt and this I got ready by adding Mistyfuse to the back. By the way, I have a new iron - and I love it. I put away my expensive and crappy Rowenta and picked up this Hamilton Beach model at Target for just $25. It gets good and hot and has a nonstick soleplate. It also gives off a lot of good steam. It is so nice to have good tools!
Here are the fabrics I have for the binding (above). The two pictures below show the binding in place - fused and stitched. I have also extended the lines of the screen print with a black fabric marker. I plan to enhance that area with the watercolor crayons, also - so it blends better.
