By popular vote, I decided against the border and went with pieced, piped binding.(Don't try this at home). It was not easy. All those seams! I used this tute from Color Me Quilty, and it looked simple enough. I may try this again without the pieced parts.
I am still in love with the straight line quilting. The rod pocket below is merely pinned in place. I was in a hurry to photograph this before the sun changed position.
I rarely, if ever, show the back, but this fabric makes me think of men's pajamas, and I have to laugh. In this photo I have an invisible white glove lady showing off the back. (Hate that. The art is on the front.)
In conclusion, I managed to force mitered corners too. Ugh.
BTW, what clinched my decision on eschewing the borders was this comment from Ann from MD:
I think it is finished. Wouldn't it look great hanging on the wall of a sunny beach house?
I couldn't agree more!
