I finished my Southwest Tree of Life quilt! I managed to find the 1/16" cord for the mini piping between the final border and the binding. My only difficulty with this project was running out of the variegated thread that I was using to quilt the final border! It was an older thread that had been in my collection for quite some time, and I've never seen it since buying it! Fortunately I found another thread that worked - just a slightly different collection of colours. I had to hunt for the 8 inch section where I used it, so I think it works just fine.
I had fun quilting the black areas with a greeny black thread. I enjoy free-motion quilting so much that it always surprises me when I hear how many people are afraid to try.....
