Quilting again...........

I was determined to get this quilt quilted yesterday.  I basted it about the 3rd week of January and it has been draped over the bars of my longarm ever since.  I quilted it on my Babylock straight stitch machine.  Three sessions spread out over the day was the right way to tackle it.  I have trimmed it so it is ready for binding.
I tried several reds for binding but the border fabric has a rust background with red in the print and I couldn't find anything I liked with it.  My next thought was a purple but then I saw this green and I like it with both the front and the back.  I'll made a final decision this morning and get it done.

The green works well with the bight border print. Nice choice!

Green works great. I have a quilt loaded on the long arm, just waiting. Due to headaches and neck spasms, it keeps sitting there. Today, I hope I can get it going.

The green looks good from where I am sitting! Received the fabric yesterday. The African scraps are great and ones I did not have. The check is in the mail. Thanks so much!

The green is good, but being a PURPLE PERSON I would have gone with purple, even though I did not see your purple! Beautiful quilt.

Another gorgeous quilt and the green binding is great, another colour lesson for me. I am in love with your backing fabric, can you tell me what it is?

This really is a beautiful quilt. I just keep coming back to look at it as the bold, bright, warm, happy colors keep drawing me in. Thank you so much for sharing this progress. :)
