Binding already..........

I have just a little bit of interior quilting to do on this quilt so I trimmed the edge, cut the binding and sewed it on and am about 3/4 done with the hand sewing.  I'm sure most people would have chosen a nice quiet solid color for the binding but not me.  I decided both the front and back are loud and busy so why not use a busy print for the binding.  I like it and I guess that is what counts.

The bright binding brings the fun of the quilt right to the edge! Looks great! And you are certainly on a roll with your finishes for the New Year! I enjoy seeing all your designs and fabric choices

With the brilliant color of the quilt, a solid binding might have looked quite out of place. I think the colorful one looks wonderful.

I like it too, though I confess it probably wouldn't have even occurred to me to audition it...that's why your posts are so good for me.

I love how prints change when there is such a small area showing. They morph into something diffrent

Beautiful colours! The binding is perfect. I wouldn't like a plain colour for this.

One of the philosophies in Saori weaving is "weave your heart" - I think it translates to quilting also . So, Quilt your heart.
I love it.

Love the binding, it looks great. How lucky to have a great grandson and be able to attend his baptism.

That is the perfect binding fabric for this quilt, and one I probably would never have thought of. Once again, your color sense is fantastic. Looks like a Kaffe Fasset fabric.

A solid binding would have been out of place with all those prints. This binding is perfect!

It looks perfect to me!

I'm certain that I would've chosen a solid binding :). And I'm equally certain that on your quilts, whatever you like is what's right. There is no quilt police.
Now that I've seen how great your choice of binding looks,who knows, I might even be a little braver myself in the future. You are, as always, an inspiration.
