Finish it Up Friday-A Big One

I have been working on this Summer Sampler Quilt Along quilt for approximately three summers. Whew! I'm so excited to announce that this quilt top is DONE!
Some people hang flags in front of their houses....I hang quilts. 
This quilt is going to MCC. I think it will end up in the West Coast MCC sale. Now my big dilemma is do I send it to the NFC quilters to big stitch or do I machine quilt it myself and try to top stitch it with some DMC embroidery floss to make it look like the argyle focus fabric (Remix Argyle Plaid, by Ann Kelle)? Also, I really want to bind it in black. Do ya'll think it'll take away from the look?

I'm linking up to Crazy Mom Quilts and Finish it Up Friday.

Beautiful! I don't know what I would do as far as the quilting and binding goes. Big decisions!

This looks so awesome Jessica! The colors are perfect and the white really lets them shine. I love a sampler. Glad my VQB is one.
