    I got the top done. Now I need to quilt and bind. The back will be the light pink. I have plenty of both pink fabrics left, I'm leaning toward the darker pink with teddys. What do you guys think?

    It's really overcast here today, so the colors don't look as vibrant as they really are. I'm really happy with the colors and contrast of the purple.

    Very Pretty ! I kinda think the light pink would pop against the darker pink, jmho.. but either way it will be great :lol:

    Very pretty quilt -- I love it! If I was doing it, I probably would bind in the dark color. But either way, it will be gorgeous!

    If it were me I would use the dark pink. I usually like to bind my quilts with the last border color.

    I always bind with the darker fabric. Supposedly, from an artistic point-of-view, it gives your eye a place to "end". I like the blue, if you have enough of that one....
