Decisions, Decisions....

This is one of the scrappy Gizzy Quilts that just came back from being quilted by Chris.  I had to choose the binding fabric, so I asked Millie to give me a hand. Here were the final selections:
Option 1, a multi colored stripe.  (The dark batik in the foreground is the backing fabric.)

Option 2, a white with black stripes.

Option 3, a black and white zebra print.

As you can see, Millie took her job very seriously.  You can see how her own lovely black and white coloring informed my choices. It was very clear the binding simply HAD to be one of the black and whites.

In the end, Millie and I decided on the zebra print. I trimmed the quilt and made the binding. I'll be attaching it to the quilt in the next couple of days.

YEAH! I was reading along and looking at the photos and I was going to vote on the Zebra print, then I saw that Millie already had! Go Millie! You have great taste!!!!! The colors were 'ok', but they just were ok, LOVE the zebra print!

I like Millie's choice. The quilt looks like a fun one to make. I am working on a Quilt of Valor right now. Have one at the longarmer and another on the wall waiting to be finished.
