Box of Chocolate’s Continued

The top is pieced minus borders.

I love all the movement and secondary designs.

I have 4 solid jelly roll strips left over.

I thought I was going to have enough to use as the border strips, but I added an extra row.

If there were enough to go around, the decision would be easy, I would use what I have.

If I have to buy fabric for the binding, border and backing, it opens up many opportunities AND a trip to the quilt shop. I guess that isn’t all bad.

Backing, how many of you forget about the backing until you are done piecing. I get so caught up in the designs in my heads and the fabrics in front of me that I forget. 

What would you do for the border and binding?

Enjoy the journey, Jackie
