When making scrappy quilts, it's really easy to default to a light background, like white or cream or white with red polka dots. I know that I do! This background was a bold choice, but I love it! I picked it out in the month of June, when my backyard was a similar brilliant green color. I have no doubt that it influenced my decision.
When it came to choose a binding for this quilt, I had quite a time deciding what to use. I felt like I had painted myself into a corner! I usually default to some sort of red, but that didn't work so well with the green background. I auditioned several fabrics before I settled on this sunny yellow binding. I think it finishes it off nicely.
I sent it to Steffani for quilting and she did a great job on it!
Happy Monday to you!
