...what colour binding I finally put on my 'Winter Trees' quilt?
Believe me, I tried every colour in this quilt...BUT...only one colour gave me that 'Ahhhh-Hah Moment'....you know where THAT music plays in your head and you go "Oh YES!"
Yup...it was this yucky green fabric! :o)))
When I was making this quilt I had envisioned a RED binding...I thought it would pop the trees...but it was like wearing too much jewelry! Just way TOO MUCH!! The trees popped without the binding...
This quilt must have been on my sewing room floor for THREE days...I left it with all the colours going around the quilt...and every day I went "Yup...GREEN"! Just to make sure...
Yesterday I cut out the binding and stitched her on...YUP, it was meant to be! Subtle is sometimes better! A single strand of pearls is often all you need...(if you know what I mean...)
So now I will hand stitch the binding down. I was also going to go in and BIG Stitch between the rows...but she just doesn't need it! She really doesn't... Sometimes it's better to leave well enough alone!
Hope you have a SUNNY Sunday and Happy Stitching to YOU!~P
