    It is a rocket quilt, for my DD, a Rocket Scientist. We tease her about being a rocket scientist because she is really an aeronautical engineer.

    Hand quilting is now done. Yay!!!

    I still have binding left to do. Should I use Red or Blue?

    Hand Quilting done on My First Quilt. I'm so excited!!!

    Very Nice!!! My dad was an aeronautical engineer as well. I made him a quilt for the "rock scientist" with apollo rockets and the space shuttle and planets and stuff. I would go for the blue binding as well!

    Great quilt!! I think I'd probably use a red border just because I like red best :roll:

    Just to keep things even... I'd go for blue! lol

    But I seriously think either colour would work really well. Blue is my favourite, so I lean towards it whenever there's a choice. But red is stronger, and would have more of an impact.

    Your quilt turned out really nice. I just love the colors & the pattern, that you have used. As for the border, I just think it's a matter of personal preference. Either blue or red, would work just great.
    :D :D :D :D

    Your quilting stunning. I am always in awe of someone whe has the patience to hand quilt. Either color would be good. I am a fan of blue. Use the color you and your daughter would like.

    I vote for red binding. It looks like a great job handquilting. Don't you find it relaxing and rewarding?

    I second the vote for the red fabric in the center, to be used as the binding...but I just fold my fabric lengthwise and slide under quilt to audition. I can hours, "auditioning" fabrics, lol. :D

    I am feeling ... RED!

    But, my favorite color is blue ... maybe a sky blue? oh, that isn't what you had in mind at all, is it? LOL ...
    It is a beautiful quilt and either binding is very fine. :D

    Wonderful quilt! The answer to your question is "yes". :lol:

    My DD is a "rocket scientist", too (masters in aerospace engineering). She's now in a physics PhD program. All her textbook begin with the word "Quantum". We tease her, too, when she asks a simple question . . . we say "It's not rocket science". She also likes to quilt, sew, crochet, cook . . .
