    I have done some baby quilts, table runners, other small things, but this is my first bed size quilt. It is a king size in the turning twenty pattern. I just got it back from the LA quilter and have not put the binding on yet. Thinking of binding it in the red to match the border. What do you think would be a good binding?
    Please excuse the lack of carpeting and furniture in the pic - new house, not completely finished yet!!!

    Beautiful quilt and quilting. Red or tan would look good for the binding. Good Job!

    That is a very nice quilt and I agree with using the red border fabric for the binding, too. I like bindings to match the borders. I think any of your other fabrics in the quilt would be too light of a color for the binding. You will be on a roll now making bed quilts!!

    Yes, please use red binding! I love this quilt! It makes me want a blizzard so I can snuggle up under it with a cat!
