I thought I knew what I was going to do with the binding, and even washed up some red for it (one of the reds from the stars), but unfortunately, it looked like crap. I was either going to cut off part of that outside stripe:
Or I could have covered up that outside stripe:
But I didn’t like the way the red looked up against the stripe, and I preferred the look of the blue and green stripe on the outside edge.
Again, it was either cut off that outside stripe, go with the red at the edge, or cut the border narrower to end up with a blue green stripe on the edge.
OR, better yet: I could fussy cut (and fussy sew…) the binding and voila:
The blue/green stripe on the front and the red stripe on the back.
I’m pretty proud of it! Up next, photos of the whole quilt!
