    Help with binding, please...

    I usually "get" what kind of binging and/or birders my quilts need.... However, my Bonnie Hunter Tumbler Leasder Ender challenge quilt is giving me problems....

    As usual, these days, there will be no border.... Just a binding... My mind's eye says to use a pink 30's fabric, but I don't have enough pink to make it around the quilt... So....I pulled these fabrics.... a light 30" a blue 30...with little dogs.....a soft striped blue, and a plain lavender...

    What do you guys think? I really want to get this baby done, and in the mail to my Bruce, do I don't want to wait fir someone to have time to tske me shopping fir the pink I really want... Thanks!

    Seeing some small prints and maybe some older fabrics, I think I would chose the 1930 repro with the little dogs.

      why not use the pink you have along with the other colors and do like a jelly roll strip where the colors change. Maybe cut the pieces so that they are a fourth or fifth of the length of a side. That would continue the colorful quilt theme you have going on.

        I really don't have much pink...maybe a few scraps... I have thought of making a scrappy binding, that would reflect the quilt itself....i of course there would be some link involved.... Hmmmm...

          I like the blue or the green (or what looks to be green). Like LauraP I was going to suggest going scrappy with it too. It will be a fun quilt whichever way you go.

            I do like the little dig fabric.... It's solid enough to actually frame the quilt, while still adding something.... Those cute little dogs...

              I think the little dog fabric is cute and would look good. It looks like a really fun quilt.

                      The blue with the dogs will blend in very nicely. If you want something to pop, I suggest either the blue dogs or the blue stripe with a lavender flange.

                        I don't care for the purple. I think I would make a pieced binding of the '30's fabrics. I've made pieced bindings from FQs--cut the long dimension of the FQ. You should be able to get several strips from a FQ. Jenny Doan one time made a pieced binding from 5"charms, which IMO is too small. Post a pic when you're done. It's a cute quilt.

                          Well..... I decided to go with the little dog! The purple would have made a great frame, but I couldn't resist....
