Hope that you all had a lovely Thanksgiving!! How nice to have a long weekend in which I was able to get some real sewing done.

Baby girl quilt top

Got the top done and even managed to get it quilted!

Quilting Baby girl quilt top

I’m thinking a red binding because the dark red pops so much and framing it in that same color would balance it a bit. But would that make it too Christmas-y? That’s not the goal as it’s a baby girl quilt that will be given after the holidays… Hmm… Maybe pink is the way to go? What do you think?

    I would definitely go red, it’ll just pop. Very lovely quilt for a very lucky little girl!

    I think the red would frame this quilt and really make all the colors pop. Great job!

    Those colors are amazing! A red binding would be great. Have you thought of doing a pieced binding?

    Okay, I’m not following the consensus here – I say pink or pieced. It’s a wonderful quilt!

    Very nice! I like that green print. As for the binding, go with your gut. It’s going to be lovely either way.

    Red is my favorite, but I vote for the pink since it is for a baby girl….

    I also love the green, so maybe a pieced binding…

    Lovely! I like the limited palette and simple patterns. Call me crazy, but I think I would go with the green print for the binding. (I know the Uptown is discontinued though . . .)

    it’s fabulous! I’d vote for red binding. not too christmas-y at all.

    I personally would use the red and white dots! Or is that pink and white? Either way, I would use that one. It might even out the red a little, which I really like by the way!

    What about a print that has pink and red together in it? Isn’t there a ‘farmers market’ print in those colors??

    Just an idea…a red binding always looks sharp.

    Just beautiful…I would be tempted to bind in the pink so it’s kept girly rather than Christmasy…

    So sweet for a baby girl! That quilt has a lot of impact. I don’t think it will be too Christmas-y no matter what you do, and almost anything would work for the binding: red, pink, green, pieced, or a print. So I say go with your gut.

    Love the quilt. Where will I find the pattern, although your picture is so clear that I should be able to work it out for myself!
