another newbie question
 
I have just about completed my 2nd quilt top. This one has sashing and cornerstones. I had originally planned to put a border on it; but after I finished the cornerstones and sashing, I thought maybe it wouldn't look right with a border, so was just going to leave it as is. Then I got to thinking again (I know, I need to stop doing that lol)--if I put the binding on; won't that cut into the squares of the cornerstones? Now I don't have a clue what I should do. The board always knows! :) Thank you in advance for your help!

Can you post a picture so we can see? That will probably help people, including me, give you advice.

Just throwing out an idea here . . . but maybe you could add a small border and then do the binding, to match the border.

I love it!! If I put a border on it, I would use the cornerstone fabric...If you choose not to add a border, I would keep my binding narrow as to not cut into the sashing and cornerstone

If you measure the cornerstone blocks and sashing on the outside edge and compare to inner pieces, you will see that they are wider to allow for 1/4" seam of binding or another border. You are good to go, adding either a border or binding. Cute quilt!

So pretty!!!!!!

Very pretty, good job. I think I would put a border on it. I agree with the corner stone fabric choice. But either way it is gorgeous.

I would add a white border the width of the sashing all around and then bind in the red of the cornerstones.

Thank you so much! This one was way more challenging than my first. Obviously, I wasn't ready to do cornerstones yet (almost none of them line up properly) and it was a little more difficult trying to line up all the 2.5 in squares rather than just the charm sized squares I did on the first one. However, it's for my little 7 year old stepdaughter, and she loves her ladybugs and that's all she'll care about. Besides, I guess I had to try something different right away, or else I might have just stuck to charm pack quilts lol. Thanks again for your help!
