    My quilt back is a pastel green and my binding is black. Which of those two color threads do I use to hand sew my binding to the back?

    Ditto on that one. I would also use the black.

    That has been my thought all along but as I was pinning the binding, I suddenly questioned my thought process. THANKS!

    Do a little test with both colors and see which hides the best.

    I was told at a quilt class to always hand sew the binding with thread matching the binding.

    I think the black would be best. I can't wait to see your quilt.
