The Write In Vote

Blue binding in Granny Square quilt using Michael Miller fabrics
Well.....I was all ready to start cutting the gray binding for the Granny Square quilt.  I had been leaning towards gray even before I asked everyone to vote for sashing.  And the majority of votes were for gray.  So gray was the clear winner!  Easy, breezy.  Decision made.

And then Mary (a.k.a. Spoolhardy Girl) just had to go and suggest navy blue in the voting.  Ummmm....wow.....mind spinning!  Why didn't I think of that?  It's so nautical and crisp and fresh and just plain awesome.  So it looks like the "Write In Vote" of blue is going to win.  What do you think?  Should blue be the surprise winner?

Happy Sewing,
Jenny

P.S. Yes, I know....Mary suggested Navy blue and what I'm "auditioning" in the photo is more of a royal blue but it's the darkest solid blue that I have.  And I actually used that fabric in one of the blocks.  It's Moda Bella Solids in Dusk.

I have been considering making another one using black sashing and granny edges and the actual squares in bright light fabrics or solids. Has anyone done this?
