    5" Tumbler Quilt Top

    I just finished this top. Haven't decided the backing or the binding but am thinking red. Suggestions would be appreciated.

    So nice! I think you're right, red would really set it off. My second choice would be the blue.

      Very nice!! I think I would go with the green (favorite color) or the blue for binding the quilt.
      Thats what I like about multicolored quilts...you can use whatever color binding you want and it will match!

      I ordered the tumbler ruler a few months ago but havent used it yet...its on my list LOL

        Great job! I like how you did the white around the outside.

          Love it! Red would be a good choice. Just pick whatever color you want to pop out the most. Great job!

            Love it! Any of the colors in the tumblers would look great on the binding. Choose your favorite.

              I'd say red, blue, wheat (the tone in the quilt) or any of the quilt colors would be great. Nice job! Love the way you did the white border. Very snazzy looking quilt top. What are your quilting plans?

                debimalaga, I'm not sure on the quilting. I don't actually do my own quilting so I always defer to my quilter's ideas, she's great!

                  I think the red would really pop. Blue would be more subtle and leave the tumblers as the focus.

                        I think that if you pick out one of the blue florals for the backing that would be nice and then a red binding would look amazing with the front and make the flowers pop

                        The quilt's beautiful so far x

                            Red would be really nice - but after my last fiasco of bleeding when I washed a quilt I'm a bit shy of it. Really any of the colors in your blocks would look great! Nice job - I need one of those tumblers!
