How about a binding that includes the left over colored material? Link it all together for the binding strips. It will be jolly! Very nice work. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

It's lovely. I'd add two borders to it; the first would be a narrow one using either blue or green batiks. The second would a wider border using some of the reds. It would make it larger and it would make all the colors pop more, IMHO.

That gives me ideas as to what to do with Batik fabric scraps. I like anything that is quick and easy. I like your use of the black. It makes the colors stand out.

I agree with Debbie C, I would do about a 1" pencil border then a 3-4" outside black border and finish with either a batik or black binding whichever looks best.

Your quilt is wonderful! I like the idea of a colorful binding as others have suggested.

Whoever received the quilt is indeed lucky! Did you by chance take a pic once it was done? We would love to see it! And thank you for sharing the pattern!

Bind it and call it a day. Using strips from your colour fabric pieced together would make great binding.
