    More possible options for the hummingbird quilt.

    Ok here are some more layouts for the hummingbird quilt. Don't have any darker blue or green yet to try. Will get some this week. But I did try these layouts........???

    I like the second one and leave off the yellow and last red borders. The first one is too much border. It doesn't need the yellow.

    I'd like a bit of green in place of one of the yellows but it should be lovely when done!

    I really like the third option, because the yellow gives a nice setting for the hummingbird block border. Almost gives a resting place for the eyes. Can't wait to see it finished.

    Exactly what I was thinking. Will be so pretty!

    Just to confuse the issue... I like the first one, to me, it highlights the hummingbirds twice by separating them.
    If you see someone without a smile, give them one of yours!

    I want the hummingbird fabric. Where did you find it?

    The third option would be my choice but I don't know why.
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    When you ask for opinions, you're going to get a lot of different ones. So it basically boils down to what you like. However, since you asked (LOL), I would put a tiny sashing of yellow around the main fabric (maybe 1/4" finished), then the red with the white vines, the bird panel, another red with white vines and use the yellow for the binding.

    I think your first post had some green? I think I liked some green in there too. I still like these too. But the green really picked up the green in the hummingbird print.
