    Hi! I am almost done with my "center", a coin quilt layout of Moda Bliss charms and white. I need to add quite a bit of border in order to get a good size. I've searched the web for coin quilts but haven't found any with borders that weren't just simple sashings. Any ideas for a pieced border that would look good with a coin quilt style center would be very appreciated!

    On one that I did, I did piano keys. But I like piano keys. Mine was all batiks and I used Black sashing and borders and then added the batik piano keys.

    How about a curvy contrast to the 'center' like a Drunkard's Trail (that's what this layout of drunkard's path is called) border?

    How about a wider border with some appliqued vines and flowers?
