Here's something I bet you don't think of when picking your quilt fabrics. I'm in the process of binding this gift quilt. Staring at the small bias check of the binding next to the striae fabric of the backing is about to drive me stone blind. After a while the little checks start to move in my vision and I have to step away for a while. It's hard to see the edge where the needle goes into the backing fabric due to all those little lines. I will be very glad when this one is done!
