    Border color opinions please

    I just finished piecing this Easter table topper and want to put at least one border on it. It feels to me like it should have a lighter color - either the light violet or blue but I have more of all the fairy frosts used in he star. However, I only have enough of the violet to do a 2" border. Should I do a narrow violet and then bind or maybe a 2nd color pulled from the star? I'd love hear QB'ers thoughts. I', planning to use the Easter egg fabric for the binding. The topper is 25" across without borders. Thanks!

    I love purple and blue but my eye is drawn to the blue for the pop factor of the star. Good luck and I love it!! Fabulous

    i would put the pink on first and then the blue. the pink makes the star points stand out more. the center is really gorgeous!

    I agree with QuiltnNan. Since you want another border I would do the pink, then the blue. That is amazing and really gorgeous!

    My first reaction was the pink, but I like the above idea the best. It is so pleasing to the eye. Great job!
