    It's a beautiful quilt. I think I'd actually prefer a tan binding over a pieced one.

    Hard call. Depends on what you can live with. If you have it in your mind to re-do afterwards, then I would follow through. The decision was made and from what I've read you seem like the type of person who would follow through. Good luck. It's a beautiful quilt.

    Well, it seems most everyone is agreeing with what I really want to do - scrappy. One person suggested bigger pieces, and I had thought of that. But, what I think I will do is a variation of that answer.

    Combine scrappy and tan. Scrappy centering tops/bottoms, and sides of hearts, at peaks, tan all around. Taht woudl give me solid fabrics to work the miter, instead of a bunch of bulky piecing.

    I had hoped to work on it for 7 hours yesterday, but ended up taking Mom to the ER, so not one second of work was done - sigh. But, Mom is okay and that is the main thing. So, I will just need try find a few more seconds somewhere! Any have some seconds or minutes or hours in their stash? Wanna share? LOL
