    Which fabric would you use for the border on this mini twister quilt?

    I really like the plaid because it has the same colors as twister blocks, but maybe it is too overwhelming. I'm not too excited about the green.

    Which one would you use? Thanks in advance.

    Why not both? Try the dark green, then a very narrow band of your bright green or the darker yellow, then the plaid.

    I think both, too. I think I'd put a narrow green border & then the plaid in a little wider one.

    I like a narrow green border then a wider plaid one. The plaid really picks up all the colors.

    The block colors are delicious. I love plaid, so I vote for that pretty plaid fabric.

    The plaid floats my boat! That's a beautiful quilt you're making!

    Love the plaid so hope you use it alone or using 3 borders.
