    Hmm,bind blue or yellow?

    What would you do? I have solid yellow, or the same blue used for the border.

    For the back I scraped all the leftovers together

    I like the idea of yellow since it is the colour in the smallest amount in the quilt. Have you thought about a flange binding using a narrow strip of yellow and then blue. Here is a link to a tutorial;

    There is another method for flange binding using both colours and sewing them together first (one is slightly wider than the other) and then sewing on the binding. I know there is a tute for that too but I don't have the link.

    I like the idea of the same blue or the stripe for the binding.

    On children's quilts I usually go for a darker binding so it doesn't show the dirt.

    that's what I did to the last one I made!! http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...d-t224808.html
    might have to do that again. I have a big piece of the blue left, but cut length wise, so no stretch
    thats what I am pondering now.
    thanks for the link on the tute! I might try to do it this way. the last one I made by sewing 2 colors together first.

    I think a dark blue binding with a yellow flange would look very nice. I did a flange binding and really love how it turned out.

    The flange idea sounds great. The quilt back looks like a very nicely executed modern quilt. The top is wonderful too.

    I like the idea of the yellow. I try to make my binding a color that I want to pull from the top to make it more visible and have more 'pop'.

    The stripe cut on the bias would be my first chose. Or the same blue as to border or the dark blue.
