    Need opinions on binding please

    I’m getting ready to layer this mystery quilt I did earlier this year. I was thinking of doing the binding in the blue but now I’m second guessing myself. What about using the tabs from the quilt and make a kind of scrappy binding. I’m thinking the tans would be better. I’m just not sure.

      I think the blue frames it nicely.

      If I ever got it all together, I'd be too tired to do anything with it.

        The blue gives a more solid presentation

                  I'm with the blue too. I like a nice frame.

                    Thanks for all the input. I started to think that there was too much blue. Must have been tired. 🙄

                      when I'm trying to decide on a binding I fold a strip and wrap it around the edge from the back side with just a bit showing. That more closely reflects what the finished binding will look like. I like the blue BTW

                    I'll speak up for a light binding. Since the 2 borders are dark, I'd go with a contrasting light binding like the beige.

                      Another vote for blue but you are probably done already.

                      The other option is to try the same cranberry fabric for a no contrast finish.

                        Beautiful colors. The blue seems like a great choice and seems like a formal choice. The beige is another great choice seems fresh and perky.

                        Don't think you can go wrong with either .
