    I would like to see that sashing color you have on the blocks as a border. Just my thoughts.

    I vote for the 3rd down on the left. The first dark border stops my eye and lets me focus on the lovely blocks.
    The dark print on the bottom gives the overhang some weight. Just my thoughts

    I too think 3rd down on left. the black larger border with the burgundy or what ever looks great!! I think a braid border would be too busy and detract from your blocks. Post a picture when completed. Please!
    Keep smiling, it makes others wonder what you're up to!

    I like the third down on the left also. I prefer dark borders though. Pretty quilt.

    I would use the third one on the left also, but change it just a little. I would use a narrow border of the big black print, then another narrow strip of the lightest you have, probably the pink, and then a wide border of the big black print.
    I have made several like that, and I think they are stunning. Somehow the light strip cutting through the dark just brings out the black very nicely. I cut the narrow borders 1.25 inches and the wide border 5 inches. That gave me 3/4 inch each of the first two borders in the finished quilt.

    Hi Vivian - I like the 3rd photo on the left too. However, the larger border could be any of the fabrics. I think I would choose blue but that's because of personal preference. Thanks for showing us the full quilt. It's beautiful! Show us the final quilt when you finish it.

    SooBDo, I am not sure how you know the type of fabric. I have looked everywhere to match this up because I needed more of the dark maroon fabric for the border. I have been in many quilt shops and no one could tell me about this fabric. I sent my husband into a shop with a strip of the fabric and the lady identified it as Hoffman 1895. (She said your wife probably knows that. HeeHee). I was able to look online and find it. I have since ordered 3 yards just to have extra. I just wanted to say you are good. I don't know much about fabric lines but I think it is time I learned.
