Bind the Winkel


I drove out to Janet Lee's house yesterday to pick up the Sparkling Winkel and Dark Majesty quilts. What will I use for the binding of the Sparkling Winkel?

 Light blue maybe?

 Orange?

Yellow?

 Dark Blue?

Or red?

Well, I'm leaning towards one of these, but I want to try some other options.

Here's a fabric with a lot of colors, but it disappears.

This is a cream, but the quilt disappears too.

This is a black and white and when cut will look sort of like piano keys, but these disappear too.

This fabric isn't in the quilt at all, and that's usually a no-no for me, but it has a lot of the colors in the quilt. But the edges still disappear, which I don't want.

Any of the colors would probably work well, but I have made up my mind. What do you think?

I am drawn to the blue. I wonder what you will choose?

I vote for light blue, if you're asking for opinions. Which I know you're not.

I'd vote for light blue or yellow, depending on the effect you're trying to achieve.

I like the dark blue or red or even the orange. Something bright and fun to frame the quilt.

Try a black that reads solid.

Hi Lynne,
I like it, when a quilt is "framed" by the binding, so I would prefer one of the dark colors. And because my favorite colors are yellow, orange, red I would take the red fabric.
I am curious, what you choose.
Many greetings from Germany - Beate

Since your mind is already made up, I would pick either the orange or the yellow with the orange being may favorite.

I like the fork-y darker blue best with the lighter blue second. But the red could also be a contender unless it becomes "too much" when it encircles the whole top.

I like the red, but the dark blue is my 2nd choice. I also like the idea of a multicolor with the red, dark blue and orange!

If you want the border to indicate a full stop, then I like the dark blue or red options. But I have to say that I like the first multicolor--it looks like your colors are pixelating as they rush to join the quilt.

I truthfully like the orange. It's just seems to be the perfect edge. Not too bright, not to dark, just a good finish.

An orange or orange/yellow-gold tone on tone would be my choice with these blocks. Bright and cheerful. It'll be fun to see what you have chosen.
