The journey making this quilt was very enjoyable for me.  I wanted this quilt to be ready to sell to more of a broad based client so kept the theme more traditional and appealing to most.  I had debated over the boarder on whether to frame with a wooden frame or not but decided to do a neutral fused border and binding instead.  Part of the reason for this was cost.  I plan on selling this piece and by framing it, I would have to increase the cost of it by quite a bit so decided I will allow the buyer to make that decision.    Hope you enjoyed the journey making this with me. 

Now on to another exciting piece.

It really came out beautifully. I think it depends on the person, but anyone that wants a piece of art, may be willing to pay to have it framed by you so they won't have to have it done themselves, but also it does seem easier to buy when the cost of framing is not added.

It did turn out well. And you are right, it has a very broad appeal but without being too much of a catch-all image. It's still very view:) Good work in the midst of all of that activity:)

Still very view? What is that???LOL! I mean it is still very much you-your piece-even though the subject is very appealing to many.

It was fun to follow along, as always, and I'm looking forward to "our" next adventure! :)
