    Momto4 - joeyoz has a great idea. I did that with another quilt - Here is a pic of the border.

    Betty, this is so pretty! I think I made a quilt of this fabric.
    Did you do the quilting too? Very nice!

    How about using the fabric from your backing, leaving it larger than the quilt top, and folding it over and stitching it down? I had to do that with a recent quilt, and it worked out real well. I even had the quilt machine quilted, and she was able to stay inside so I could fold it over. I hope you find a solution!

    I think the solid color 1 1/2 inch than the print fabric 2 1/2 or 3 inches will pull the whole quilt together, it will show your blocks and the look is nice, than do a scrappy binding of your remaining fabric

    I'd just butt the top and backing with no border and no binding.
