I finished this baby boy quilt and I went for a scrappy red binding, just so you know.  It was the subject of great debate.  Husband was convinced it should be Kona Ruby and I was just as convinced that a greeny dots was the choice. My blog reader's comments indicated a strong interest in my green idea.   I compromised on a scrappy red with bits of Meadowsweet's Reunion line.  I am quite happy with it.  I used Faith's Lemon Squares pattern and the fabric is bits of stash, some Reunion and a whole lot of Michael Miller's, The British Are Coming.  I got all of that lovely stuff in a scrap pack of samples at a local quilt shop.  There was more than enough to fussy cut all the scooters!

I quilted double straight lines on either side of all the block lines in Aurifil 50 wt in white.  Love that thread!
