One Corner and a Binding - W.i.P. Wednesday

I have just the little corner that's folded over to quilt, about 3 hoop's worth, and a binding to cut, sew, and stitch for this quilt to be finished.  But I have just a few days left in the month to do it if I'm going to accomplish my goal of finishing this quilt in March.  I'm sure I can finish the quilting but I'm not so sure about the binding.  Maybe I can modify my goal....

This quilt is larger than it looks in the photo above.  It's folded into 6ths and is a large twin size quilt.

Speaking of binding....  I'll have to lay it out and audition some fabrics for binding, but in the meantime, I'm considering possibilities.  I think the best option will be to use just one color but the questions are:
  1. A scrappy binding or a non-scrappy binding?  Maybe the quilt is already too scrappy (read busy) for a scrappy binding?  Maybe it needs a "quiet" binding?
  2. Which color?  Use a color and/or fabric that's already in the quilt or choose a neutral?
I can hardly wait to finish this quilt.  And I will never, ever set a goal to hand quilt a quilt in such a short time!  Never!  (But I may need to remind myself of that.)

I'm linking this post to W.i.P. Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.  Thanks for hosting, Lee.


P.S.  This is the last time you will see this quilt as a work in progress.  (Hooray!) 



  1. I make a lot of scrap quilts and love a darker coloured binding (navy is my all time fav). It somehow brings all the different fabrics in the quilt together. I have done scrappy, non scrappy and solid bindings. All of them work.

  2. LOL - I've used 'never' before. Let's just say that 'never' arrived sooner than I thought it would. :) I like wombatquilts' idea of using a darker color to pull all of those yummy fabrics together. I like the idea of a blue...or a brown, but use what you have. It's going to be wonderful!

  3. It's so fun to put on the binding - cause then the quilt is done! You can do it - get if finished by 3/31! I think one color - I would pick my favorite color and go for it.


I appreciate your comments and look forward to reading what you have to say. Thanks for stopping by.
