I just put together a little quilt on the week-end, for no particular reason. A bright, pretty, girly baby/toddler quilt. I have absolutely no need for a girly baby quilt right now, but I just felt like playing with girly fabric, and I wanted "instant" gratification. I started cutting Saturday, and by Monday night, I was done quilting the top. In my world, starting on Saturday and finishing quilting on Monday is really, really fast.
Here's a sneak peek:
Ah, the things you see in a picture... The quilt probably has more than 20 prints, but this picture shows a lot of repeats. Doesn't matter... this quilt makes me smile.
So anyway... now that I am done quilting, I have to put a binding on this thing, and soon! I am travelling next week and I need a binding to stitch to keep my hands busy on the plane.
I certainly don't want to go low volume on the binding. I need something medium to dark to frame all those pastels. I also want it to play nice with the backing which you see on top of each picture below. Oh, and most importantly, it has to come from my stash which, I come to realize, has a shortage of pretty binding fabrics...
So it's down to these five:
1. This first one was my first choice. I have actually cut the 5 strips I need from this fabric, but I am not quite committed yet.
Well, that's it for my little dilemma. What's your dilemma today?
