Choosing a binding........

I got my colorwash trimmed and then started looking for a binding fabric.  I needed it to be dark on this one because the entire edge of the piecing is dark.



I also needed to take into consideration that it would look good with the backing fabric.  It is a muddy brownish green batik print.

I spent part of the day outside because the weather was beautiful.  The rain missed us this time.  I pulled and dug out more weeds and cut some dead branches.  I have purchased the zinnia seeds but didn't plant them yet....maybe today. 

Today is Memorial Day...a day we remember and honor all who have served our country and sacrificed to keep our country safe and strong.

I like the fabric you have chosen for the binding. I love bindings- they are like the frame on a painting. Great ones add to the overall look, not call attention to the framing. You always do a terrific job choosing the bindings.

I have been outside this morning, just sitting and thinking of Memorial Day. Last night we watched The Patriot with grandsons so they could get a feel of what our founders went through for our country.

Looks like the binding fabric you chose is a really good one. The rains and winds did not miss our area - there are a LOT of folks still without power (we were lucky on our street).

That batik looks perfect for the binding!

I will say it again -- I love your use of color and pattern.
