WIP - What should I bind with?
more_vert
I need your help! This has been a WIP for almost a year now and my recent roadblock has been making a decision on binding.
Here are 3 options I pulled together: I could add some purple to the quilt, use this silvery grey which is already in the HSTs, or a subtle white print to edge the whole thing. I've also seen that striped binding is trending, my aunt introduced me to flange binding, or I could do a scrappy binding with my leftovers! There are so many great options and almost too much inspiration out there.
Thanks for you help :)

I agree with umterp. You need a nice dark color to "frame" the quilt. I love your colors!!

Purple for contrast and framing. Also, bindings seem to pick up dirt easily, so the darker color will help with that too. Lovely quilt! There are great sewing groups to share and get feedback on FB too!

I would use purple for the contrast and good framing for your quilt.

I would add the purple in some areas of the quilt and use it for the binding. Your eye will travel from the purple blocks out to the edge, taking in more than it might otherwise.

Silvery grey, white gets dirty easily especially along the edges. Purple draws attention to binding not your quilt.

Of the 3 colors shown, I like the grey...unless there is purple in the quilt and it would go in a room that has purple accents.

I’m leaning towards the dark blue.

It might look great if you piece together some of the fabrics from the quilt to form a scrappy binding. I think throwing in some of that purple for bling would also be fabulous!

Seems like one of your blacks might be a good option, also.

I would use the cadet blue, as on the back; has a grayish tint that compliments the gray
