Ribbon Border Part 2 * Added *

Today I worked on the ribbon border for the Patisserie Waltz Quilt.  The entire time I kept feeling like I needed to hurry and hold my breath par chance something happen aka go wrong.  This fabric has been wonderful to work with and the entire quilt has gone together much easier than I'd even dared to hope for.  So I felt like the Meerkats in the Lion King Movies.  "Scurry... Sniff...Flinch!"

I'm planning on checking the measurements on this Twin Sized top just to see where it's at as I'm trying to figure out if it needs another border or not.

What do you think of the teal in the ribbon border?  I look at it and my eyes say "okay you're there...  now what?"  I don't know if the correct answer is the use it in the binding or if that will be to much at the edges.  I considered for a micro-second using teal thread to quilt it, but I rejected the idea quickly over quilting with white thread because as you know I really love that Patisserie Fabric aka the white patterned one.  LOL.

WOW I love it and the teal gives it a nice pop of colour. It also enhances the Patisserie fabric.

What you may want to do is audition both the teal and the purple for the binding. Lay out the quilt in such a way that the middle is all folded up leaving one section of Patisserie fabric and the ribbon border at each short end. Then lay a thin strip of teal on one side and a thin strip of purple on the other. Stand back and see which one looks best.

I think a teal binding would be a good finishing touch and would tie in with the border nicely.
