    Here is my jelly roll quilt and I decided to add a 9 patch block in the four corners to brighten it up a little. It is not quite as long as I would like it and could be a little wider also. What do you think about adding another border with the top and bottom wider than the sides? What do you think about another pink print? If I did that I would bind to the back of the quilt. Here are a couple photos if I can get them on. :roll:

    Well, first of all, you should know I'm a quilting newbie - so take my opinion with a grain of salt.

    But I think it would be nice if you added another border, especially a pretty green one like the other colors in your quilt. But if you really wanted an overall pink feel to it...then go with your gut. :)

    I'm not a big fan of pink, so I'd pick a print with pink flowers but a blue or green background or an allover print like the larger print strip near the middle of the main body of the quilt.

    I really like how it looks so far!

    Actually, I was thinking of working some of the green into it - just a little with some of the other colors too. I will have to check my "stash" tomorrow.

    Cute quilt-yes, it would look good with another border.
    Pink or any other color that's in the body of the quilt.

    I loooove pink & green so play around & pick the border that you like the best.

    Your quilt is cute. I don't think I would put another pink border on it would be too much. Maybe the green like others have suggested.

    I like the idea of a green border. That would be perfect and bring out the green in the quilt. Go for it.
