I traced the pattern onto the paper side of the fusible web, pressed the fusible web onto the back of the black fabric, then cut away what is the background of the image. Leaving open what would be the blue background.
Someone at one of the Debbie Mumm club classes once said, you only need to make bias binding for curves. SO this quilt called for Bias binding. After making the first couple with a curved top, the others, i squared off the top, in order for it to be more easily hung. But i still used bias binding, because of the pretty effect it created on the edges, and in the middle.
