I have found the binding fabric for my wild zigzag quilt. Most even polka dots aren't printed straight so I went for one that has a random pattern. I tried a few different ones and think this multicolor is the best. I hope to have this quilt finished by tonight. I finished re-binding the Crooked Cobblestones 2 and I'll know after it hangs a few days if it is really fixed.
I needed to empty the design wall that has the best lights by it so I could audition for the binding. The result is that this top that was on the wall got taken down and sewn together. It is 56" x 70" right now so it is a good lap size. I'm not sure that I want to make it any larger by adding borders.
For those of us that believe the fabrics and the piecing design are the most important part our quilts, it is paralyzing to try to dive into the quilting of the layers that may 'ruin' our quilt. I know there are others out there that share my feelings; I read it on your blogs. All over quilting designs sometimes mush the piecing design and beautiful custom quilting takes over and that is all you see. I want my patchwork to be the star. I want the quilting to compliment but not take over. I like simple quilting the best. I have 4 done out of 14 that have to be finished by the end of May. I need to make some quilting decisions soon to meet my deadline.
