    I got this charm pack yesterday from an ebay sale. I'm just going to do a random patchwork with it. My question, would it be too much to border it with a 1" orange/yellowish border, then black, or should I do the turquoise blue then black? Not sure how good the pics are going to be...I'm at work and took them with my phone, might have to post better ones later... :-D

    I like a bright narrow border. I call them zingers. They're nice charms!!

    I think orange would be striking. Depends on if you want it to stand out out or blend in more.

    I agree. Match the orange/yellow. It will pop.

    Orange will bring out the other colors. Go with it.

    I like the orange or a yellow for a thin inner border then a darker outer border. It'll really pop.

    Are you making it for someone in mind ?... Whilst orange would really make it stand out if it were for a boy you might want to tone it down with the turquoise... You could always go for best of both turquoise with maybe orange cornerstones..... really nice fabric though

    Orange/yellowish would make it pop and awesome looking (IMHO).
