    Out of the colors in the topper, what color do you think I should bind this one in? Thanks for your help, Michele

    I like the center red color.
    I love to have my binding contrast with my outer border most of the time.

    if you want the red and white/green to stand out, I'd use the black material so the binding is not seen as quickly. Great topper.

    I like the green...it's dark and won't stand out, but will show the green inside better.

    black - smooths out the edges.

    I normally like the darkest color to frame it out, but in this case, definitely the red. Very pretty.

    My choice is to use the same fabric as the outer border. I like the binding to blend with the quilt and not call attention to itself.

    Beautiful topper. Like the way it looks right now, so I'd go with the black.
