Printing the Binding for Last Light

The fused binding for this piece is hand dyed fabrics that matched the collage fabrics in the body of the quilt.  I planned to print the binding after it was in place on the quilt.  To accomplish this, and to get the prints in the correct location, I placed masking tape right up to the inside edge of the fused binding.  

The next step was to print the binding.  I wanted the binding print to blend right in with the other printing, so I was very careful with my placement of the blocks and also with my color choices.

 As I pulled away the tape, I was hoping for the best.
I was happy with the way this turned out.  Next - to quilt the printed binding.

I like how you have been explaining the development of your quilt show entries. You are very generous to share, and I appreciate that in an artist. Good luck at the show.
