Quilting and Stuff by Knitnoid

Design Wall Monday

Today I’m deciding on the binding for the ‘Modern DP9″ baby quilt I  threw together a couple of weeks ago.  Yesterday I drove down to Rocking Chair Quilts and quilted it on their Handi-Quilter.  I am thrilled with the way it came out.   Here’s a picture of the back:

Now I have to decide on the binding.  I have 3 choices from my stash:

  • Use the backing fabric
  • Use the white I used in the quilt top
  • Use the pink/orange mottled fabric.

My original intent was to use white — not that it makes a whole lot of sense as either a binding or on a baby quilt, but I like the concept of the “crispness” it would give to the quilt.  The backing fabric I think is too pale, but it did send me off to my stash to search for some orange fabric which is where I came up with the pink/orange fabric.  I’m not sure it’s right either.   I guess I’ll dig some more through my stash, perhaps looking for a ‘pinker pink’ or a yellow.  I only need 10″ WOF – but since most of my stash is FQ or smaller, my options will be limited.

Check out the links at Patchwork Times to see if anyone else is having binding issues.

6 Thoughts on “Design Wall Monday

  1. Cute quilt! You can use any bright color in the quilt to bind this one. It would ‘frame’ the quilt nicely.

  2. Very cute…love the quilting!

  3. Love the quilting!

  4. Very nice job!! I love crisp color combo’s too. I don’t know why but I love whites with pinks.

  5. Cute quilt, will you show us the whole top? I think an aqua blue would be a good choice for binding. Altho any of those yummy colors would work!
