I participated in a charm square exchange with my quilt guild earlier this month. We all brought bright fabrics. This is not the type of quilt I would normally have made (very bright), but I like it. I already had the two border fabrics from a trip to Hyannis, Mass. Even though they're busy fabrics, I think they calm down the quilt a bit. I plan on buying a backing fabric (probably a blue) and I'll use the blue sailboat fabric for binding. Instead of having it quilted, I'm going to tie it. That way, I'll be able to finish it more quickly.
