    is that pink and chocolate brown ? I LOVE those colors together ! If it were me, I would do a pink border then bind with brown.
    I do not make mistakes in my quilts, sometimes God just decides to make an Alternative Design Decision ! http://slightlyoffquilter.com

    This is really pretty sew far. Love the pink and brown sashed in white. You have several factors to consider when adding borders. How much of these fabrics do you have left? Do you have other, coordinating fabrics? And, what size do you want your final product?
    Honestly...I think you could just add white borders to size, bind with strips of the pink and brown. Would make a great modern quilt...

    If you have enough of either the pink or brown, that would look nice as the border. If you need to purchase fabric for the border, I would bring a piece of each of the colours in the top to the fabric store and look for a large print that contains all three colours for the border. Lovely top!

    Try to imagine the color you would get if you mixed the pink and brown. That is the color I would use for the border.

    thank you Cedar....I think a trip to Ben Franklins here in Helena is in order, see if my imagination is as good as it used to be ........would you do the binding the same colour as the boarder ?

    If you're a beginner that is a beautiful quilt for anyone. Good job and my granddaughter would love those colors. Gives me an idea for another quilt.

    I think you should always quilt with the colors you like. If I don't particularly like a color, I have a hard time finishing that project.
