I screenprinted the cottonwood trees on the binding after it was in place.
Masking tape protects the quilt from any ink that might extend beyone the binding.
Once the ink is dry, I remove the tape. I am pleased that I have been successful in positioning the screen so the print of the trees continues naturally into the binding. Next, I will machine quilt the binding to make it blend in with the quilt even more!
Here is a picture of the quilted binding.
