    Love the quilt. Great balance of colors. Personally I like the idea of red, would continue the warm feeling of the quilt.

    Wow Deb, I knew it was going to be gorgeous! I can't wait to see it finished! You've got my vote for red(tell R sorry) depending on the color of your backing.

    I would use the rust color that is in the leaves.

    Beautiful quilt! I would go with whatever binding goes with your bedroom. Any of the colors will work.

    I love the blues and dark blue would pull those colors out even more, but red would be great also. Beautiful work!

    I vote RED to match the center of your log cabins.
    That's a gorgeous quilt!

    Hi Kelly, It seems that red has the big vote on the board. Randy thought that I should use the green to match the vines. My backing is just a beige color. Hopefully we can get together soon for shopping or quilting. Debbie

    I would use a binding with a flange in and use red as main and blue or green as the flange especially as husband did. Offer a suggestion and not shrug and say any.

    several folks suggested red and I would agree, but a patterned red not solid...and perhaps on the dark side, not too bright. IMHO.

    I would use a solid, dark color. Red is good.
