Holidays are over and time to sew again

The bear quilt came back from the long arm quilter lady...and is ready for me to put on the bias tape binding I decided to finish it off with.

Below are the pics of the quilted piece. The quilting in the green is hard to see from the front because the thread blends in so well.

And keep in mind that the quilt is lying on my almost full/queen size bed and not on the king size bed it belongs on, and on it, it goes to the floor on three sides.

I like the fact that she left the nose alone. Stands out more.

She said she added wool batting under the bear to round the edges better and to make the trapunto stand out more.

Per my request, the black border has this bear design on top and bottom strip.
