    It's too short. It's supposed to go along the top and bottom, but doesn't reach from side to side. I don't have enough of either fabric to make it longer. Oh well, I like how it turned out. I'll take a picture of it pretty quick to share. I will need opinions on backing color too. Then I'll need help figuring out how much backing fabric to buy.

You'd adjust them to fit your own taste and needs for size and fabric amounts available.
    My thought exactly.

    Me, too. I like solids for inner borders & prints for the outer borders. This quilt top is beautiful & I'm looking forward to seeing it all done!

    Yes - I agree with Jan.....small yellow, wider blue print and yellow binding. Love your quilt top so far.

    Audition the quilt from across the room with the two choices. From the small bit I see, I like #1.
