So I finished quilting Sea Glass on Sand - hooray! I'm now debating what to use for binding. I've narrowed it down to four options:
The solids are all Kona. Recall that I used Bone for the "sparkle" blocks in the project. Also noteworthy is that Baby Blue doesn't appear anywhere in the quilt, but Aqua does (triangles). I actually auditioned that mottled taupes print for the "sparkle" squares but it has a bit too much white in it. Not sure if that will be a problem for a binding which shows far less of the fabric at one time.
Opinions? Let's do a poll!
I'll leave the poll open for a couple of days. Thanks for your input!
When I first typed that on my iPad it tried to correct it to "boner." sheesh.
I want to see the whole quilt! Love the bone color, I voted for aqua for the binding.ReplyDelete
I voted for Bone. I love the natural binding together with the linen & blues.ReplyDelete
Still crackin' up about that first comment LOL! I like both of the blue colors, but it's hard to say without seeing the whole quilt. But since it's about sand and sea, aqua makes total sense to me ;-).ReplyDelete
Aqua....and *giggles* at Krista's comment!!!ReplyDelete
Very cool, how do you embed the poll in your blog post? I could even answer from my RSS reader, which I didnt expect I would be able to do.ReplyDelete
Normally I'd use aqua on something like this (actually, I use aqua on just about anything!), but after looking at the picture of the whole quilt, it seemed like bone would allow the variety of blues/aquas to stand out more. FWIW.ReplyDelete
I would like aqua on MY mini quilt, please. Muchos gracias ;) But I also like the bone. Love you quilting!ReplyDelete
I would do aqua but a bit of bone in there in a random spot.ReplyDelete
I love the aqua, but would love to have seen the mottled with it in person...I kind of like that too.ReplyDelete
I voted for aqua because I worried that using bone might take away its sparkle effect but that would have been my other choice for the binding or the sand colour.ReplyDelete
Krista's comment cracked me up, and I like Anya's idea of aqua with a bit of bone somewhere.ReplyDelete
Bone with an aqua strip pieced in. :)ReplyDelete
I think I like the bone best.ReplyDelete
I'm definitely in the minority here, but I really like how the mottled looks against the linen. But, my second choice would be the aqua. Whatever you decide it is going to look great!ReplyDelete
