Binding and samples

I spent last evening binding the Yo GG quilt - well, at least doing the machine sewing part. I didn't have enough of an odd orange fabric that I wanted to use for the binding so I settled on this green. The green pulls out the green of some of the characters. My next color choice was purple, but I don't have any purple fabric in my stash.

Here is the start of the pile of samples for my lecture on Thursday. Since I used the last samples I made in a quilt I needed to make new ones. I did them in black and white so they would photograph better and the contrast would help when I print them on the non-color printer.

I like the green for the binding. I can't see purple one it. But once the baby pukes oh it I suppose it doesn't really matter. :-)

Oh, and I think I like the green! Iit keeps the feeling cool and looks like a vey good match to the tone of the quilt.
