    I like the while polka dot print and would use the pink as binding.

    Hi Pam,

    What a nice quilt. I like the polka dot border.

    You could have the polkda dot border in say a 2" border first.
    Then put a thin 1/2 inch folded fabric border in the
    Breast Cancer polka dots fabric.
    Then follow with a 3-4" outside border.

    I would have the binding match the outside border.
    If fabric is in short supply, I would then think about making the binding a scrappy binding using all of the fabrics used in the quilt.
    I would have each scrap be in varied short lengths with the fabrics repeating so they continue around the quilt.

    Please keep us updated as you progress through your project.

    Pam M
