Stitched Binding for Hedgerow

I like to finish off the printed binding with quilting stitches. This secures the binding in place and creates a nice firm binding that holds it's shape well and hangs nice and flat.

I got a little wonky printing the binding (I covered the quilt with a piece of paper to mask it so there would not be printing spilling over onto the quilt and this made it difficult to align the block perfectly (the block was also upside down so I could not see the details on it, either)
I am sure I could figure out a way to overcome this, but I am not really sure it matters all that much. I like things to be a little bit irregular.

I also like the look of the black thread.
What do you think?

I agree. I think the black thread really sets off the cool shapes of your flower stamps and "holds" the whole piece together. Love it.

I agree. I have loved them all. They're just getting better and better!
