    I still vote for the original with the pink paisley.

    I agree with the original border fabric. It is gorgeous and just frames this quilt perfectly! Sometimes we tend to over think things and change our minds a dozen times. You really made a perfect choice using the original border print. Frames this quilt perfectly!

    I agree ... the dark border print takes it from being a lovely (ordinary) quilt to one with a never-forget impact!

    I'll agree with Dunster right thru to the dark border print, then stop before her green paisley suggestion (if the green is the mid-green in the centre of the quilt??). Just be careful that you don't get the pink border too wide.

    Don't change a thing. I love it just the way it is. It all ties in well together. You got it perfect!!! Don't second guess yourself. If you start doing that, you might not like what you end up with.

    I like it better the way you have it here, with the paisley border. The darker border seems to overpower the quilt to me.

    Thank you everyone for all the input you sent to me. I have decided what to do and the result will be in a near future post. Thanks again.

    The only thing I would do is add a darker binding to what you have because the piasley trails off and doesn't stop the eye from going right off the side of the quilt Otherwise it is wonderful and I wouldn't change anything. Best stitches!
