    Which Fabric for the Border?!!

    Working on my Relay for life quilt. It looks a little ruff because I haven't snipped the edges around the blocks---it is going to have a short raggy look between the blocks.

    So what border do you think would be best?!!

    I think the plain fabric is the best. The printed fabrics take away from the blocks! JMO

    I like the plain purple best. Brings more attention to the blocks I think.

    I like the plain purple. The others are to busy. I love your blocks.

    I'm for the plain purple. It will set the blocks off nicely. The others are too busy & will detract from the blocks.

    Purple really works well and shows off the blocks the best.
