my eyes wander all over the store. I looked at one particular fabric and all I could think of was “wow, great binding!” It was on the sale shelf and I figured 1/2 metre for the stash……..well, when it’s on sale you have to take the full metre. I did. Awwwwwwwwwwwwwww, poor me!
I love stripes for bindings. That and scrappy. Just adds to a quilt IMHO.
I started to looked around to find something, anything to go with it. Oh my gosh, look what I found. I think this is actually a co-ordinate. The colours all go so well together.
I kept looking as I had this little idea niggling away in the back of my mind. I found 4 fabrics that work so well with it, not from the line, but really perfect together.
I cut up all those little critters and I did the the same with the fat quarters. I’m going to make up four patches.
I have sewn up a couple of the blocks just to see what they will look like.
Then I put it up on the board with the binding. I was happy with it so I made a couple more.
I'm happy with it. I think I'll border with a bright yellow and white.....white being the inner border and then I'm going to try to do a "flange" binding. Something new to talk about next month when I get back into the swing of things after holidays.
No that fabric is not going to be the sashing. I'm thinking of a solid dark blue for that..............thinking, not positive......yet!
