The rows actually sew together like this, and I have to say, it was so hard to cut off the sides of those scrappy hexagons. But I so didn't want to bind all of those angles, so off they came.
And I had this Quilt Top. Only now, I am wondering how I want to finish it. Originally I planned to just leave it like this and bind it. Only, what color would I bind it in. I think either red or pink will get lost in all of that scrappy goodness.
So then I started to think, should I add a border to give it a little restful place for the eye. I found this red gingham print in my stash that I thought would work perfect for the binding, if it was next to a little white. So I thought maybe this pink polka dot print for a border??
But then I wondered, maybe something that wasn't red or pink. Like this fun gold metallic print. Does that give it a little more interest??
And then I wondered, maybe something that has red and pink in it. Would that tie it all together more. I love the colors but is the floral to busy for an already busy quilt?
I want to finish this up just right and I am not sure how that is. What do you think?? Leave it without a border and just use a bold binding?? Or add a border for a rest, and if so, which border, pink polka dot, gold polka dot, or floral??? Help a girl out here and leave a comment on which you would choose ;)
Regardless how I choose though . . . I have to say that I am just so excited to see all of those wonderfully scrappy hexagons come together in such a wonderfully scrapilicous quilt top!!! It's just so fun!!!
I hope you all have a very Happy Quilting Weekend!!!
