Here is the piece, finished with a traditional binding. It is about 38" by 38".The red and turquoise are commercial fabrics, but everything else, including the backing, is a hand dye.
And here are a couple of close-ups of the back.
Since I've also had a goal this month of "loosening up" a bit, I didn't sweat the starts and stops. If I could get away with it, not every loose thread is tied and buried. :)
I plan to link this with The Needle and Thread Network and Nina Marie's Off the Wall Friday.
