    What color binding should I use?

    I'm almost finished on this quilt. I need to applique the rest of the oak leaves/vines/acorns on one side and then embroider stems from the vines to the acorns. Hopefully will get that finished this week. Then I can quilt it. I was going to bind in dark red, but my husband says to go with blue or green. What do you think?

    I'm a red person. I just love the color and it looks like it would go better with all the other colors in your quilt.
    BTW, that is a lovely quilt.

    How about using scraps of red and blues from the top!

    Although it would be fine with blue or green, I also vote RED. It will really make it pop!

    What a beautiful job you did! I would bind in dark blue if you truly don't care either way. Of course I've found myself binding almost everything in dark blue recently.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.
