    I made this quilt top today for my nephew's first birthday which is next month. It will have green fleece for backing. I plan on quilting and binding it tomorrow. However, I am having a hard time deciding which color I should use for the binding. I could use the same green in the small border or the orange in the four patch blocks. What are your votes? Thank you for the help.

    Since you used the green for the inner framing, I vote for orange for the binding.

    Does the green fabric match the fleece for the backing? If so, I vote for green.

    If not, then orange!

    It looks great.

    No, the fleece backing is a different shade of green. I think it is a little lighter.

    Orange since you will have a green backing. this way from the back it will have a nice second color too and look framed. Anna

    I would use the orange. I think you have enough green.
