Getting there

It's been interesting to watch how the colour variations fall in this longer section. The more purpley bits have tended to land mostly in the middle and there are some orangey bits at the ends (not seen in this photo).
I'm looking forward to seeing how this all comes together at the end. I have a theoretical understanding of the construction, but I'm still curious to see how it will fit together in practice.
Has anyone given any thought to what they plan to use as a fastening?

Looks so great!

I've been thinking about mattress stitch b/c it's invisible. I'll break out the reference books today. Maybe we should email Alice asking her for a reco?
