    Purpose for my Black Batting

    This quilt top is why I was asking questions about the $22.00 roll of back batting I bought.

    This is my string quilt top I just finished sewing together. I am appliquing the flower etc.
    I will put a 3" string border around the edge, then about a 5" black marble border around that.

    Another question: should I bind all that in a color, picked out ofthe strings, like red, or green or yellow?
    Or should I sew a lot of strings together end to end and use that for a binding?

    Thanks!

    Very pretty. Why not audition some colors and see which one you like best.

    I'm going to change those petals around (they're just pinned). It seems I have the red stipes all on one side of the flower. My bad.

    I like to match the binding to the border fabric, if I have enough.

    Beautiful quilt.

    This quilt is really a work of art! Bravo!! I think that a red binding would really make a statement.

    I like the black but another color might look good...sometimes I take some fabrics and lay them under the quilt and take a picture then I can see it differently.

    I don't know about the thread color; all the suggestions are good.
    But I do LOVE that quilt!

    Gives it "shadow" and light direction..I'd leave them just as they are!! (And I'd bind with the black)
    One day, you'll only be a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.

    Such a beutiful and unique quilt! It just draws you in for a closer look. I myself would go with the multicolored binding. Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks for all the suggestions. I really do listen to other peoples opinions, especially on here. Everyone is so helpful and I have learned so much since I joined.

    (Thanks for the thought about the flower. I might do that.)

    I would bind with red. The black binding on black borders will hardly show.
