Christmas quilt

Well I have the top together. I'm undecided about borders and binding. I don't really have enough fabric to do either, unless I do a scrappy one. So I either order more fabric, or go with a solid. What do you all think?dresden

Here are the two blocks I made for the quilt! I think I need to make this quilt again, except with fabric I can have out all year long. It is so pretty!

So, any ideas on borders, binding, or quilting? I have a few rolling around in my head but wanted to get a few other opinions. I think I am going to do a flannel on the back since its a Christmas quilt.

it's gorgeous Amy! :) I kind of like it as is... or some of those red snowflakes or polka dots would be a cute border. :)

flannel will be perfect.

Oh this is fabulous!!! can't wait to see what you do to finish it...I think you should do a solid for borders, and then maybe a scrappy binding? It will look great whatever you do!

Love it. Could do a thin border and then a scrappy border of the material you used in the quilt.

How will it be quilted? Consider the thread color in choosing your binding. And remember the basic rule in quilting: It really doesn't matter! Whatever you choose will be beautiful!!

This is beautiful! I saw it and thought red with medium white dots.... like the scale of Ta dots.
