Here are a few choices. I'd love to get your opinion.
1. I picked up this fabric for a song at my guild's yard sale - It is a bit pale for my liking, but it goes with everything (including the backing which I will reveal later)
2 - Of all the colours of the red family, from orange to pink to burgundy, this rust colour is my least favourite, but I really like the print, and I remember buying it thinking "it would make a fantastic binding". Do you agree?
3 - I initially had in mind a dark binding, and have a few browns in this quilt, so I dug out this old civil war reproduction print that I have no plans for. It might be a bit harsh compared to some of the brighter colours, but it does frame the quilt well.
4 - If I want to go bright, I have this red (which is also in the quilt) as well as a few similar ones to chose from. I am a big fan of red, but somehow I am not feeling the love... Too busy?
What 's your favourite? I include a photo of the top... feel free to make another suggestion if you feel inspired. Lots of colours to chose from.
Thanks for your input!
