    I am working on a jigsaw puzzle quilt. What kind of border would you do? Need some suggestions.

    I went to http://quilting.about.com
    In the upper right hand corner there's a search box. Type in
    Jigsaw Puzzle.
    The picture shows a baby quilt with no border.

    If you use very colorful material, then I would put in a black or navy blue border.

    I used 3 borders on mine..... a narrow width black border as a first border, then a wider scrap border and an outside black border.

    My quilt, I think, has too many prints and not enough plain fabric. So it looks too cluttered. I can find so many clothes with flowers, and prints but am having a hard time finding plain clothes to cut out.
    Maybe if I can get my daughter to show me how to post a picture, I can show it and get some more advice.

    If you feel it is beginning to look too cluttered, then a solid black border would be just the thing. I have done that in the past and it really ties it all together.
