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.
Next up was a black fabric, that I thought I could use as just a frame:
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!
