    Taking votes for binding choice

    What do you think?
    I have solid yellow, solid red or the blue to finish this with.
    Or something else?
    Thanks

    I like red for the pop effect. It will be beautiful whichever you chose.
    A home is built of peace and love,
    and not of wood and stone,
    a place where happiness lives
    and memories are sewn.

    You've done a beautiful job of making the reds "pop" with that inner border. What I would do is concentrate on making other colors "pop". That blue and pink backing fabric would be perfect, IMHO. A nice border of that would make the blues and pinks "pop", as well as adding a cohesive element to the quilt.

    did you see the flange binding? It was on here not too many days ago. And I know there is a tutorial that was linked here as well. I think using that method with red and yellow would be good.

    found it:

    aw, thanks for bringing this up! I actually thought that would be cool and then dismissed the idea as too complicated.
    I didn't see the tutorial before so this is great!
    I might give it a shot.!

    Pink binding with a red flange would look good.

    Auddtion the colors. I think that the red may be too bright and pull your eyes to the red and away from the inner quilt blocks. Actually I vote for blue

    I say Red to match the inside red and to help it really stand out.
    SMILE- it will make everyone wonder what you are up to.
    Stay strong and keep looking up.

    I'd say red, but if you do the flange binding, I'd put yellow inside with red. I've done the flange binding once, not hard, and it looks really nice.

    I am generally drawn to a darker binding, without knowing the color of your blue, I vote red.
    Better to do something imperfectly, than nothing perfectly.
    Done is better than perfect.

    I almost always use the flange binding, it is not difficult at all and it seems to tie it. I love the quilt, it is very pretty and very well done.
    Happy Quilting

    I would use the blue for a border, then red binding. This repeats what you have going on in the center and gives balance and cohesiveness to the quilt.
