    New ? RE: Can't decide on border

    I have been studying the quilt and border and have come up with a new ? I'm begining to think that the border is to dark for the body of the quilt and should be relpaced. Please feel free to offer up your opinion on this. Here is an idea with just the paisley border. Here is the original idea Can't decide on borderName:  joans tatw 002.JPG

    I wouldn't replace it as it ties the quilt together.

    I think that the inner purple border needs to be replaced with a green inner border and then try the paisley. I think the inner border is too dark and the tops needs some green in the border. Then I think the paisley will work.

    The gorgeous border print that you showed us yesterday - Can't decide on border - that is the stuff dreams are made of. I would keep it in the quilt no matter what. Yes it is dark, but it still goes very well. What if you have the narrow dark inner border (like on this page) then a slightly larger light border, then the border print, and then optionally the green paisley?
