June ALYOF Goal

My June goal for A Lovely Year of Finishes is to bind my new bed quilt! I've had it back from the machine quilter since the end of April and it's still folded up on my studio floor, waiting for a binding. Here it is again, both sides:

And here are my binding choices. I was originally leaning toward the red one, but now I'm thinking the green might be a better choice (I put all 4 choices down below so you can see). I want the binding to contrast, and the red will contrast nicely with both sides, but there's not a ton of red on the pieced side of the quilt. The green will contrast with both sides, and there's enough green in both sides of the quilt that I think it makes sense. What would you choose?


  1. I think the green would look great!

  2. My choice would be the green. Lovely fabrics, by the way!

  3. Binding - my favorite part! I actually think the red contrasts nicely with both sides. Either way it'll be pretty.

  4. La colcha es preciosa, cualquiera de ellos quedarĂ­a bien pero creo que el verde es el que mas contrasta.
