    any suggestions on how to finish the edges?
    the zebra print is from a quilt I made for Maliyah's mother(my niece).

    I vote for very dark pink, or more zebra for the binding. Really cute quilt!!

    I'm not sure if I want to do a binding or not...the back will be flannel also, I was kind of thinking about maybe doing a rag finish on the quilt instead of binding.

    Great quilt - very girly.

    I'd vote for black background with white dots.

    Maliyah is a lucky girl! How old is she? I'd suggest something rather plain since the pattern is more busy. Love it!

    What about applying the backing pillowcase-style, turn to the right side, and topstitch all around?

    Maliyah will hopefully be making her apearance by Christmas, my niece's due date is 12/23


    thanks for the compliments and the suggestions...I'll have to look into the pillow case style i"m not familier with that. I do have several strips left over that I could do the keyboard also

    Pretty quilt. I like the piano-key idea for the border.

    When I say "pillowcase" I mean placing the front of the quilt right side to the right side of the backing, then place the batting under to form a sandwich. Stitch all around leaving an opening to turn the quilt right side out. I topstitch about 1/2 to 3/4 inch all around. (Oh, and close the opening with handstitching. Have I confused you?
