    Default I would like an opinion on binding fabric

    I just got this back from the quilting lady and I am thrilled with the job she did. I still have to bind it but can't decide what to use. I have enough of the green, the border print and almost a complete jelly roll like I used for the log cabin strips. I can use either and I'm wondering how it would look if I pieced the JR strips together, randomly, to make the binding. An suggestions?Click image for larger version.

    I've used scrap pieces of jelly rolls for binding but usually on a scrappy quilt. Personally, if this were mine, I'd bind it with the green. That is a gorgeous quilt.
    Sometimes, when there's a raging fire,
    it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

    Beautiful log cabin! I'm with Sandy...I vote for the green. I think it'll look nice against the lighter border. I love the binding in a contrast.....but that's me. No police here.....go with your gut. That will make you happy.

    I used pieced bindings so often, I love the look, especially if I have interesting fabrics or colors in the quilt. My daughter made a quilt with about 18 rainbow colors in it. I used as many of them as I could ( it was King size) to bind it. It turned out so pretty. I also think the style of the quilt ( formal vs. informal) dictates whether this kind of binding will work. For a more formal traditional quilt, I would use one color for the binding. More informal or "fun" quilt can be bound using the different fabric pieces. IMHO

    I have used both in the past with good results, but for this particular quilt I would vote for the green. Just my opinion. You have done a great job on the quilt.

    Just curious, what color is the backing? Would that color work for your binding?

    I'd probably go with the green.

    Gorgeous quilt by the way. You and your longarmer did a wonderful job.
    And I too would go with the green binding.
