I spent over an hour at my LQS trying to find a beige to use for the binding to no avail. They were either too yellow beige or to grey beige. I decided to see if I could find a burgundy to match the mitten, nope. I settled on this red varigated with gold sparkles for the back and thought I could also use it for the binding but I am not loving it. I am leaning towards using the same mitten fabric to bind. 1. What do you all think?
I was thinking of outline stitching around the motifs inside the mittens but I kind of like the trapunto effect after the quilting. 2. What the consensus, leave them as is or stitch around them?
