Yes, I Reached A Decision!

In my June 1 post, I asked for your opinions about a quilt binding color.  I really appreciate all your comments because they helped me stay focused and motivated to finish this quilt.

Following Bev’s advice, I took the quilt with me to the fabric store AND reached a decision!


Black was the ideal color to frame the quilt and to highlight the fabrics, especially the floral prints.  I used my machine to tack down the binding and am very happy with the results.


Speaking of florals, I just have to share one of my favorite coleus plants with you this morning.  I am in love with this lime green and dark purple combination and of course the ruffled leaves!


Happy Monday!

      It is an annual, so if you are in a freeze zone like we are in Ohio, you would have to bring it in. I might try to re-pot it this fall and see if I can keep it safe all winter.

    Ha! Okay so I like to scan the photos before I read a post. I like to get the visual treats first. Well I saw the plant but thought it was some new very complex quilt you were working on!!! Maybe I should stop scrolling ahead!
    I like the binding it nicely frames it!
    Now get back to working on that coleus plant quilt 😉
