I've posted pictures of The Color Purple before, so here are just a few finishing details. I sewed on the binding last night while watching a disappointing dvd about Agatha Christie (I love mysteries, by the way). I really like this striped binding - it's quite dark, but I like the way it frames the front. The stripe also has a lot of different purples in it - I think this helps it works well with the top's variety of purples, too. I've also included a little photo of the backing fabric - a 30s print from Chanteclaire from a couple years ago.
I think the pattern is called True Lovers Knot, although there is another pattern by the same name. The entire quilt is 36" by 48".
Thanks to people for their words of advice on my earlier post. I left it with the quilting I had, but can always add little four-almond flowers in those empty corners if I change my mind.
