    Can't decide on border

    My latest quilt waiting for another border, maybe? Which do you all prefer? with or without the pink paisley? I like it both ways so the QB will be the decision maker on this one. The dark 'ric-rac is the binding Thanks for helping.Name:  tatw, hs, flwers 017.JPG

    My vote is with the pink, beautiful quilt either way.

    I can see why you can't decide. In the end, I chose without the paisley. I love that fabric - I used it in a prayer quilt - but I like the butterfly border and the 'rick-rack' border together, so they win.

    You are correct that either is nice, but I like it best without the pink.

    I think I would have to go without the pink. It looks richer that way......

    I would decide based entirely on how big you want the quilt to be. It is GORGEOUS either way.

    Love it both ways but if it were mine I would not add the pink. Think looks richer without it.
