I started to look at the binding yesterday for Wagon’s West and ending up not doing anything! I have several thoughts on it —
This is the main idea I am thinking about and I don’t remember what it is called! you fold one strip in half and attach it to the front for a 3D look and then you put the biding on and hand sew on the back like usual.
Of course you need to imagine that gray color being the size of binding – what do you think and what do you call it? the word totally escapes me at the moment. And just how thin is the folded piece supposed to be? quarter inch? I am linking to Sew Fresh Quilts today and Quilt Fabrication a rather new blog to me and My Quilt Infatuation and Confessions of a Fabric Addict.
Or I could just do gray or I could piece a lot of strips from the layer cake that I used for a scrappy binding – mixing in some of the gray here and there as well and maybe the scraps from the backing which is the thin strip that I folded over on the top two photos.
I mentioned possibly sewing a straight line going out from the circles to the points of the squares but decided it really had enough quilting in those spaces as is – the spool of thread is there so you can see the size of the space that has no quilting in it. I don’t really think it needs more do you? (the thread is King Tut I have been asked – this one is #913)
