I’ve got limited options here because I only have little bits of fabric left. The dark blue is gone except I have just enough for the binding.
So do I just stop now?? Or do I take the scraps and do a pieced border and end with the dark binding? The size will be OK whether I add a border or not.
Please click on the photo to enlarge. Thanks!
I like no border… I think it distracts from the wonder-ful-ness that is that quilt itself!
I like the border too.>I love your blog!!!!!>>Francesca – Italy
If you are going to use the pieced border, I agree that a narrow plain border first would be nice.>>Conversely, my thought would be to maybe just bind it or perhaps do a pieced binding with some of the scraps you have, and no borders at all.
hi mary>>something FINALLY occurred to me … I’ve been pondering your dilemma since you first posted about it .. >>My first thought was see if you could use the half square rectangles (HSR??) interspersed around the quilt – scrappy like with another blending fabric – you know how I did the stars in kyle’s spinner quilt .. well maybe something like that .. >>if you didn’t want to do that, then maybe a neutral fabric from your stash – do a 2″ frame of sorts and then bind it .. I think that having some sort of ‘frame’ would be just the ticket to offset these beautiful blocks .. just to make them pop more3 .. maybe a yellow? light orange?? Pink even??>>either of those would work well – but it’s your choice .. >>HUGS!! n good luck with this one>>g
Did you decide on this, I look forward to seeing it done.
Glad to see this..great!!!
