a little help

binding options

while I go find some more batting and decide how I want to quilt the circle quilt, can you decide which fabric I should use for the binding? thanks

binding options

I’m leaning towards one, but I won’t say which. also, the heather bailey dots (on top) is only a fat quarter so I would have to go find more. ok go!
here’s a little reminder:

    At first sight I would say going from top to bottom in the picture, the second one with the circles, but after looking at your quilt the first one, with the some what like ovals, the colors match the colors in your quilt.

    First choice: Heather Bailey dots
    Second choice: Chartreuse/yellow dots (second from bottom)

    I would say 1 or 2 (from the left), it looks pretty!

    I like the pink/blue/gold print with the leaf or pear shapes. I think it emphasizes the colors and shapes in the quilt precisely because it doesn’t really echo them as much as the other choices do.
    I also just watched a Sewing with Nancy about Amish quilts and how they choose a completely unrelated color for the border because it makes the quilt blocks really pop instead of just bleeding out toward the edge

    My first inclination was to say the Heather Bailey fabric on top, but then I gave it more thought and read Kai’s suggestion and thought that made good sense. And these edgings are small bands of color right? So the pink and blue would pop up in a really nice way. I think.

    I like the colorful fabric also especially if you are a bias cutting binder. Those colors will be at an angle and the round shapes will show every so often.

    I think the third one from the left with the pink accents. OR the last one – the bright green ovals.

    My vote is for the fabric on the far right with the light green background and dark green/ yellow ovals. I think it ties it together and would have more continuity…unless that’s not what you’re looking for (?).

    I would say the one with pink in it. To balance the colors. But I’m sure your choice will look great !

    The second from the bottom was the one that drew my eye.
