Wild Mustang - Part 5

The Wild Mustang top is now complete.  I finished adding the borders and here is what it looks like.


I have a small inner border of orange, followed by a 1" brown border and then a pieced orange border will be 4" when everything is trimmed and the binding gets sewn on.  When I attached the border I left the basting threads that I had on the background fabric and the horse fabric so that things wouldn't shift while I attached everything.  I think that was a smart move since everything came together really nicely and there were no issues. 

So next I need to figure out what I'm going to do for the back.  I have 4 decent pieces from the trimmings off the horse fabric so I would like to try and incorporate that into the back since that would be a waste to just throw all that work out.

Also if anyone is interested in how I do the small inner border I posted a tutorial about a year ago and you can find that here:  http://felinesandfibrearts.blogspot.com/2010/03/tips-and-tricks-narrow-inner-border.html

Wow it looks amazing! I love the way the outer border really unites everything. Great job. The way the border is pieced I see a bit of a spinning "X" perhaps there is some way to use that for the back? A Pinwheel perhaps?
