Binding dilemma

I've been sewing like a demon for the last couple of nights and managed to get the top finished, layered up and quilted. Now I'm stuck with the problem of binding.

I have six jelly roll strips left.  They are all the same pattern but 2 each of 3 different colour ways. I don't know whether to pick four and use one on each side or to cut them up and piece them together somehow to get a scrappy binding. Maybe sewing them in a diagonal would set off the braid.

I'm pleased with the piecing and quilting so far.  My braid ruler from creative grids was wonderful and made everything very simple and quick.  I'll definitely be using it again.

  1. I'm lazy, so would probably do one on each side. But the other would be pretty.
