Decisions

I finished quilting my Metro Link, and now I'm trying to find the right fabric for binding. I don't usually have trouble picking a binding fabric, but with the scrappiness of this quilt, the best choice has been less than obvious. Hmm. I auditioned prints, but I think a solid is a better way to go on this one. Coal? Or azure?
Maybe brown, but it doesn't look as good with the back. The backing is the black and white print.

Azure gets my vote.

And coal gets mine!

Carla said...

I vote for the azure, as well. Wonder what a crazy color like purple would be like?

Hannah said...

I think Coal, definitely.

Quita said...

I am the minority...all for the brown.

Melissa said...

I love the azure.

Kirsten said...

Love love love the azure! Totally pops, and makes the scrappy colors pop.

I think the coal and brown are too somber. I like the azure.

I like the coal the best... :)

Marg said...

Azure gets my vote, i agree with Kirsten, it pops!

Your quilt is incredible! I like the azure, but I like Carla's suggestion and if you have a purple would like to see what how that looks.

Sharon said...

I know it wasn't one of your choices but I'd go with ash (if that's the background color). It won't distract from the pattern.

I like the azure, but I think a purple or even yellow would look really good!

Jenny said...

Azure!

I like coal, it let's the quilt be the star.

what about a black binding or a black and white pin dot...
out of the coal or azure I'd go with the latter..

Nikki said...

I also vote for azure. I think it makes the scrappy fabrics POP.
