I love #2 best, but the last one is great too.

Lovely top and I like the first picture best because it doesnít over power the top. Any of them would look good. I would calculate which one I had the most fabric for and do that.

I prefer the outside border red with the dark border between the varied shapes and the rest of the quilt.

I love your quilt! #2 pulls the greys and #5 pulls the rust and greens. I like them both but I like the last one, #5 the better. I can't wait to see this quilt finished.

Binding .... go with a flange binding in rust, and the flange in the green (or is it a grey?)

Sitting here stunned with your quilt ..... the colours just happen to be "my" favourites, so it calls to me all the more!!!
QuiltE - Yes, this is my version of Bonnie Hunters Grassy Creek, I changed a few things to better suit my own visual preferences and I opted for constant colors in Grunge vs scrappy. Thank you for you kind words and feedback!

Thank you everyone for your kind words, feedback and suggestions, its so nice to be able to get input from so many wonderful more experienced quilters. I am still not sure which way I will go, I’m just happy to be at the finishing stage.
