I am making this belated wedding quilt. It is String Blocks and then free motion quilting all over.
My question - what should I bind it with? I have enough of the tan background fabric to do that, but really think I would rather do scrappy using bits of all the fabrics in the blocks. But, that would mean ALOT of cutting and sewing even before putting the binding on.
Also, I am thinking of just sewing the front and back binding at the same time, rather than sew on front, fold to back, hand sew invisibly.
The reason for my debate, is that I HAVE TO have it done in a week and a half and don't have much time to work on it. I want to enter this in the employee quilt show I chair.
Would it be weird to just do the tan in the quick sew way, just to get it done. But then after the show, which is not judged at all, just has a viewers choice award, remove the tan binding and do the scrappy, with the normal finish?
