Thank you all so much for the input on the Rouenneries border dilemma. I went with the red, which was the favored fabric. I wish I had seen the comments about the flange and the inner red border before quilting it, and you know me, I love a good flange and multiple borders! Heck, I could have done a flange and a border! Drat, it's too late now since it's at Binding Guru Karen's getting, well, the binding stitched on. I'll have photos when it returns home to me.
The red is gorgeous in it's own right, and I'm quite pleased with it. I had a bunch of itty bitty 1.5" squares left over, so I made 9-patches out of them and am in the process of assembling them into a small wall hanging as well. I just L.O.V.E. this line of fabric! I think the last one that I truly loved this much were the Seaside Rose and Paris Flea Market collections by 3 Sisters for Moda.
My friend Sue at TTD would ask me if I want to marry it, and yes, I think I would marry Rouenneries, if it were possible to marry a fabric line. Of course I would bet that fabric monogamy would be difficult to maintain long term.
And because everything is better with a Bumble:
