Need Binding Advice

Nope, we didn't have school today. Yes, we should have. There is a dusting of snow on the ground but nothing on the roads as of 2:30. A light snow is blowing around right now but I don't think anything else is called for today.

I was able to sit down and get the t-shirt quilt quilted.

Now,  I can't decide what to use for the binding. Do I pull out the blue in the quilt by using blue for the binding?

Oh--here's the back. It's s blue and black marble with a black strip at each end.

Happy snipping, stitching, and quilting.


  1. I think, if it were me, I'd stick with black for the binding. From the pictures, the way they show up on my computer at least, it looks mostly like a black and white quilt, and putting blue on the edges would pull my eye away from the centre of the quilt, where the focus should be.

  2. I would use any thing I had - do you enough fabric from the patchwork that you did? You could piece strips together and do a multi color binding? That always looks nice I think.
    We didn't get much here either. I don't know if they called school off or not - I hadn't noticed the buses but I don't watch for them. We had rain then wind finally a little sleet around 2 and temperature dropped then but traffic going past the house doesn't look like they are having any problems.

  3. What a beautiful quilt!
    From this side of the monitor I would have to lean towards black for the binding.
    I always loved snow days, but only if there was snow. Stay warm and happy quilting!

  4. Checking to see if my comments work for me. lol

  5. It turned out terrific Vivian! I would bind it in black to match the sashing.

  6. I think black for the binding would be great. I think you did a great job. Happy snow day stitchin" Lisa

  7. You did a great job with this! What did you decide on for the binding? :)
