Quilt With Us

I had an idea for the border to the quilt top posted before.  I like the idea of using some of the left over pieces from blocks that I made.  I came up with this piece and was just wondering what everyone else thought about it.  I just laid the pieces on the background material and stitched them in place obviously.

Can't wait to see it all bordered. You are so creative in your designs. I know it is going to be fabulous!

thanks everyone.. I already have a border of the above print around the blocks followed by a thin blue border.  I think I will stick with the plan of three in the corners.  For the inbetween part I've been looking at some calligraphic designs that I think I'll toss in for good measure.

Lots of great ideas! I love the colors. Aqua in the border sounds good to me too.

I agree with the aqua in the border...my two cents! lol

Addition--I would have a small border of the aqua somewhere in the border construction. A little zinger.

I have no suggestions but can't wait to see what you do! It will be stunning!

I went back and looked at the quilt again...I would frame the quilt with the gorgeous print as the first border. I would do the three in the corner for sure on the second border and several single blocks every so many inches around using the background fabric in between.

Ending with a thinner third border of a dark brown...

You will come up with an outstanding border for sure!

This is only a six by six block, I guess I should have mentioned that and I was thinking of set of three in the corners.

Kathy, this is beautiful on it's own. Were you thinking to repeat this all the way around? The quilt it beautiful. I am afraid this design would detract from the body of the quilt design. Naybe too busy. Maybe a simple border to make the quilt top pop? Something that reads solid?
