I am in the process of making a quilt for my daughter's graduation. I have been transfering pictures she has drawn over the years onto muslin and framed them in different green prints. The quilt seems to have taken on a life of it's own and I need to have to done by this Sat night. She is away on a music trip for spring break with the music department so I can keep it out and took the week off to finish it.
The problem is I had to use all the material I was going to use for the binding on the backing. I was wondering if anyone had ever made the binding for a quilt out of more than one different fabric?
I thought this may look very interesting or awfully stupid. Have any of you ever tried this? Would it take away from the quilt? I wish I had time to try it on a smaller scale but I don't right now.
Any comments would be greatly appreciated.
