Last night at about ll:45 I finished the quilting on my mammal mandala! Hooray! Here are a couple of snaps of the back- I love the way you can see the animals in relief.
Now for the extremely large task of soaking and blocking (soaking always makes me nervous) and then binding. I'm going to do a facing which is contoured to match the edges of the bats (rather than a traditional binding) and I expect the process to be a nightmare. Who knows, maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised!
