Spiro Finished (almost)

I'm almost afraid to show this now. I've received more compliments on the previous look, much to my surprise. I wasn't happy with anything from the very start. On my design wall, it looked lost and unappealing without much to draw me to look closer. Cropped and on a computer screen was another matter.

So here is the almost completed quilt.

I'm going to bind it, but with a facing instead of a narrow binding. The finished size is about 16 1/2" wide x 19" high.

This month proved a real challenge (huh, go figure), but I enjoyed the stretch. I felt very much that I had to take this idea further to make it work. Some ideas I had didn't work, but now, two days from the end of the month, I have a thought on how to possibly make my initial idea work. Hum, more playing might be in order.
