    I am making a baby quilt for nephew's new little boy. I just can't decide in the border fabric. Should it blend in ? Should it contrast? Solid light blue, Checks with Mickey, or the yellow. Can't decide. Please Help.

    Very nice quilt! I always like a quilt that uses the darker fabric in the top as a border....maybe a tiny red border, then the "real" border in the medium blue (like the check behind Mickey - or even that checkered fabric itself), and bind in darkest blue?

    If you just want one border, I'd go for the dark blue.That's a real cute quilt!

    I would love to use the darker blue for the border, but it was a scrap I had and used almost all of it in the quilt.

    For a little boy ... the checked Mickey would be perfect!

    Not the yellow. The checks with Mickey would be ok or the light blue since you do not have the darker blue left for a border.

    I would take some red and make a popping 1" inner border then go with the Mickey fabric. Adorable quilt!

    I agree with this choice! If you don't have the red, then use the yellow for a tiny border before adding the outer border.
