I think I finished the Winding Ways quilt! At least it's a flimsy. I think I'm happy with it. I took everyone's advice and ironed down the border, and then appliqued the arcs to it. I used glue to hold everything down and it worked very well.
I chose the dyed border fabric and went back and forth about whether I was going to put the gradations going horizontally or vertically against the center of the quilt but the many lines made it too busy so even though the gradations aren't completely straight (and I had to piece occasionally) I think this brings out the center better.
Can you tell that I changed one of the pieces in that bottom green circle? (In the Winding Ways III post it was the original way). It used to be blue but when I'd put it all together it just jumped out at me too much. (I had thought it would be good against the dark border). Anyway I CHANGED it. And WHAT A JOB! Are you going to accuse me of being a perfectionist? I figured if I didn't change it now, I'd forever look at the quilt and only see the blue piece down there. So I ripped up the border and did the lower part again.
Now I get to make decisions on how to do the quilting. I'm thinking of using a walking foot and quilt inside the circles. I have to buy a walking foot first though... Any advice on how to use one of those?
That was one FUN quilt! I've got the batiks. Do I want to do this again?
