            I love the quilt :-)
            The simplicity of two colors gives it a great focus!!!

            I would use a contrast (like a solid black or brown) border. In my opinion the red/white gingham diverts the attention from the main quilt.

            Once again, I LOVE your quilt.

              Looks amazing. Red and white is always cool and the gingham adds a super touch. An idea for my list too.

                            i think with the solid red as binding it makes the gingham less of a focus factor and your quilt is the main focus
