I have officially joined the ranks of the crazy people. I am actually giving serious thought to ripping off a quilt’s binding, making new continuous bias binding, and sewing it on again. I think this might be unnecessary. Help me decide.
Here’s the deal–with this quilt I thought the purple binding was a no-brainer. I like contrasting fun bright binding to frame a quilt. I love it. I thought the purple was the winner–I didn’t even audition in. I made the binding, sewed it on…and started to have doubts. It was blending, not popping. Pulling out the body of the quilt when what should be the highlight–the crosses that give structure to it. I started the hand stitching last night with doubts growing. When I went to bed last night I was kicking myself for not using a navy binding. This morning I woke up resolute to rip it all out and start again.
But when I got out my camera to show this purple fail I was able to see that maybe its tiny 1/4″ around the edge really doesn’t matter that much? Thoughts.
