Stitch or bind...hmmmm?

So much secret stitching happening at present...it will be so exciting when we can all see what each other has been doing. My SSCS swap present is finished....just needs wrapping....send a pic to Chookyblue...and post off to.....! Can't spoil the surprise now!!!!!
This tempting pile of Christmas prettiness is grabbing my attention at the moment...it is a newish design from the oh so clever Anni Downs...Christmas Tree Cheer...itching to get at it.
Or should I be good and bind this....made with all my 30's scraps...Puss in a corner blocks...the size was dictated by the amount of background I was able to find. The yardage is a soft green with a white pindot. It is a sweet quilt and I love seeing the scraps come to life again. Probably not the best pic...
 I really enjoyed the cross stitch hop over the weekend...thanks for all your lovely comments...Part 2 will appear next weekend.

Anni Downs has released fabric? Oh my goodness...it's gorgeous! As much as I know you should bind, I know what I would be doing first ;) Can't wait to see what you make with it! Your quilt is divine.

The quilt looks so pretty, scraps quilts are great to make! As for binding or stitching...I will leave that up to you, I'm sure they will both be done in super fast time!
