    They're right. Forget the piano keys. Do a White 2" white, 3"red w/ r & w print for bindind or red for binding on a res border.

    On second thought, not white but gold or goldenrod. And red border and binding.

    I just love your prints.

    I like the red idea and strip border. I would not put another white board on.

    I totally agree with this. I think you could also do a red binding or maybe even a scrappy binding. Your quilt is fabulous!

    I like this idea. That would be pretty. Would add to the homey look.
    so many quilts to make, so little time.

    I like the red stop border first. Then you could put on a red pattern of some kind. Sort of busy but not too much - like gingham or a small pattern. Gingham would reinforce the "farm" look since you have the farm animals. Then bind in solid red. Can't wait to see what you decide.

    I like the red border with a scrappy binding -- that would be a nice finish to your quilt. Cute!
