A close friend of mine is having a baby this summer. I wasn't planning on making something for them, but I came across this fabric. Let me give you a bit of background on Brian, so the baby fabric will make more sense.
Brian is a cowboy. A bona fide cowboy. Of course, he meets a sweet-as-can-be southern girl whose family raises horses. The rest of their story is history.
They're expecting a little girl sometime in June, but they aren't an over-the-top pink kind of couple. What I need is help picking the binding and backing for the baby quilt I am making them.
The quilt will be a tumbler quilt similar to this quilt.
The fabric I have picked is Samantha Walker for Riley Blake Designs' Wanna Be A Cowboy 2.
If I were to choose, I would choose this one as the backing:
And this one as the binding:
But, now I am second guessing myself. Should I choose one of the more kitschy designs for either the backing or binding (I guess the binding I chose is kind of kitschy)? Or should I add a bit more pink?
