    Opinions needed ~ Eagle panel quilt

    This is where I am at ~ definitely not loving it, but I have purchased fabric twice because of changing my mind! I have to stick with it the way it is; but, what do you think of red for the binding? If not, do I need to add a block within the borders to add some more color? It is for my DH and he loves it, so I guess that is what matters ~ but I would really like to love it as well!

    When I first saw it, before reading your remarks ... I thought 'needs red binding". Now I'm looking at it more and wonder if a yellow binding would be better. Suggest you audition both and see how you like it.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    this is the panel I have for our Quilts of Valor "sew-in" on Saturday. I hope ours look as nice as yours. I think I might try for the yellow binding

    I vote for a red binding! Audition yellow and red and see which you like better!

    I think it needs red. Maybe as piping between the borders

    I am with your hubby, I love it! I think I would like the grey as the binding. The red would match the middle but I think it would pull your eye away from the center. Grey would let the center be the focal point.

    I would bind with the blue. Let the panel stand out! It is beautiful.
