One thing I learned in making this quilt is to be careful about your backing. The backing on this quilt is a solid yellow, but it's very thick and the stitches didn't always sink into the fabric like I wanted them to. Sometimes they just floated on the surface.
This quilt also marks the first time that I did a circular binding. I used a single fold bias binding and it turned out quite well. I marked a line where I wanted the edge of the binding fabric to be, then followed this line in sewing it on to the quilt. Then I trimmed the quilt to a circle and sewed the binding to the back. It needs blocking to make it lay flat and it needs to be washed because I used blue wash-out marker.
And, oddly enough, the more I stare at the outer quilting, the more it starts to look like carpet padding. LOL.
