    I'm getting ready to bind my 3-D pinwheel baby quilt and when I mentioned using the backing for the binding, some of you said the solid pink would be a better choice and make it more "delicate" looking. Sooo..., I took some pics of it both ways, so see what you think. I need to get my binding cut and sewn on so I can take it with me on vacation next week for some handwork. Bear with me, there are 4 pictures and I just bought a new laptop.

    I like the backing fabric. It defines the borders of the quilt. The pink seems to just fade away.

    Print brings the whole quilt together.

    The pink is very pale but maybe that's the look you want? It does look soft, but the print makes you look to the border.
