Which raises a question from me to you. When you add a different color binding to the quilt other than the quilt fabric itself, what color thread do you use? On this one, the red binding will be a huge contrast to the b/w front and the black backing. Should I use black thread or red?
The second quilt I will be creating binding for and adding is my friend's memory quilt. This one will be about 250" of binding. This one, I'm adding black binding on black border. This way allows me to machine sew down the binding without it being so evident when I come in close on the binding on the back.
I'll have plenty of time to add this binding since it's going to be a rainy weekend here in Central PA. That's OK, hubby's off today with me and we'll do a little running and then Saturday and Sunday will be spent sewing since hubby works weekends. I'll just plop in my new "Sex and the City" dvd and start sewing the binding.
Hope you have a great weekend!
