Hold on. Before I reveal my choice for the binding of my wonky Dresden Neighborhood quilt, take a look at my four options:
Did I make four different bindings? Oh no! I photocopied the fabrics, cut strips to look like binding, and pinned them to the quilt. Three of the four treatments involve a faux flange, in which the binding is made of two strips of fabric. I’ve never tried that method before.
Here’s a closeup of the fabric contenders:
There’s a white-on-black swirly print, a black-on-white zebra print, a green pindot on white (the same fabric as the background of the quilt), and the solid lime green flange fabric, the last of which I auditioned separately as a no-flange binding.
Let’s take a closer look, clockwise starting with the upper right corner:
Any one of them would work, don’t you think? But one emerged as the clear winner for me — and it wasn’t the one I was expecting.
Which one was it? Please come back tomorrow to find out!
I love the green bit with the black and white zebra print!
Yes yes, Dawn Sharafi! Please please, Nubs, let it be binding number 1!
Number 2 is my choice.
Number one is my choice. Just love the extra zip it give to the piece.
Love learning from you! Looking forward to the reveal.
