    Love the quilt center, the border choices, not so much. I agree with bigsister63 or QuiltnNan for other options.

    Do you have more of the BG fabric that you used? I think that would look best. My second choice would be red to match your small blocks.

    Background fabric would be my choice. It's a very nice baby quilt so whatever you chose will be just right.
    Got fabric?

    Hmmm, the left pink one or the bottom one. if you want to use either of the other two i'd insert a skinny inner border of some color.

    I don't see any pink or purple in the quilt at all. Keep on looking, you'll find something that speaks to you perfectly.

    I agree don't care for any of those choices

    I agree with Greenheron

    I agree with the others who don't like any...Maybe a narrow one of a strong block color and then if you have more of the background fabric I would use it...or at least look at it and see how it looks.

    None of the above. Any one of the prints in the big squares would be a better choice.
