Need opinions on vintage commission
I am finishing a vintage quilt, Dresden plate, made by a friends grandmother. It is all complete except for binding. Hand quilted. I have been auditioning different fabrics for the binding and nothing seems right, they all distract from the vintage ness (is that a word)' it is on muslin background with muslin backing. There is enought extra backing where I can bring it to the front and bind that way. I like that look and is the way I am leaning. What do you think of this idea, or am I thinking it wrong. My friend is going to gift it to her father on his birthday, the quilt was made by his mother. I want it to be mainly her work and fabrics which they have no extra of for me to use. Thanks for any thoughts.
