    i need to put an edge binding on a quilt for a show. Unfortunately the front and back clash with no material that will go with both.
    You fantastic people who have just woke up refreshed and ready to go. Any idea how I can make an edge binding which matches front and back.
    P.S. black is too much of a contrast for the back of quilt it screams take me off.

    It would be super helpful if you could post a pic of front and back and maybe one with a corner folded to the front to show front and back at same time.

    Yes, please post a pic of both sides so I have something to ponder while I eat my breakfast.

    yes give us a pic!
    but honestly I never worry about matching the back and I think black goes with everything
    will someone be looking to see if they match at the quilt show?
    do they look at that when they judge? really do they?

    Slight problem It is going in a show and mustn't be showen yet.
    Imagine a window with shutters each side and a hanging cactus(paper pieced in the window.0 Each side of the shutters is a black and white brick fabvris wall.
    the back is hand dyed fabric in creams blus and greens all very very pale.

    I now they turn it over to look at he stitching. It is my first time and I am putting in 3 . this one due to rules has had to extended from 24 inch to 48 becausethe rules state that all quiltrs must be at least a metre one way.
    i was mad when I gfound this out.

    Perhaps a green to bring out the color of the cactus and pick up the green in the background? Or pick a color in the pot or hanger that the cactus is in?

    How about a mottled batik in the cactus colors, with maybe some of the pales from the back?
