I finally finished the binding on my green and grey quilt yesterday.
The quilt did not quite turn out like I envisioned it but I am pleased with the results none the less. When I started making the blocks I thought there might be more stronger contrast between the grey and green so you could clearly see the pattern of the star, but alas it was not meant to be. Instead I think I have a quilt that you have to search harder to find the repeating pattern, making the whole thing more interesting. The finished quilt is 48 inches by 48 inches, just the right size for a kids quilt if you ask me!
If you are interested in the start of the process for me, and links to the pattern you can find my older post here.
At the end of the process I had an extra block (my maths is not what it used to be) so I decided to use it on the back.
I played with a couple of different bindings (scrappy, grey and green) and settled on using a Kona solid I had in my stash. I continue to be amazed at how something as simple as a binding choice can radically change how your finished quilt looks. The solid bright green just gave the quilt an extra pop.
It would be interesting to hear what you think of the finished quilt. Does it work for you or is it too muddy? I really value the opinion of my fellow quilters/artists out there.
