Binding the Digital Pinwheels

I've sewn the binding down on 1-1/2 sides of the digital pinwheels quilt. The quilt is a riff on a twelve tone color wheel***, and each of the twelve tones has its own WOW (white on white) background.

Sometimes the painted whites are very thick and stiff to sew through, like these dots on the Yellow Green block. It can be slow going.  As you can see, I am using another WOW for the binding. With the square shapes on the binding echoing the square blocks on this square quilt, I thought it was an appropriate choice.

The Digital Pinwheel design is from the book "Modern Neutrals" by Amy Ellis.

You can read more about the quilt here, and here, and here, and here, and here, and here, and here.

***A twelve tone color wheel is comprised of these hues: Red, Red Violet, Violet, Blue Violet, Blue, Blue Green, Green, Yellow Green, Yellow, Yellow Orange, Orange, Red Orange.

I like the way detail shots like this showcase the various fabrics used in the quilt.
