Default Borders on....and binding t00!!

I just finished putting the binding on, and I really like the results. Normally I match the binding to the last border, but I think this ended up looking really nice.

Thanks to all of you who helped me with the border decisions. I no longer think there is too much white in this quilt.

Ooooh, I like the blue and blue flowers. Looks like your quilt inspector approves. Pretty kitty.

I agree, it's not too much white and I think the solid color binding is perfect. Great job!

The darker border gives a nice fram to the quilt especially on the print border. Sometime using the same fabric in the binding as the last border makes the edge fall into space.....and not give closure to the entire piece.
