    quilting ideas for border

    Just finished a quilt top for my new granddaughter. The main pattern is G.M. flower garden, all purples and white, and the borders are dark purple with a micro glitter, and they are 4.5"wide. The top border is just blank. One border has baby's bame appliqued in 2.5" letters in white; one border has bithdate appliqued in white, and 4th border has birth weight and time born appliqued in white. I can't figure out how to quilt the
    appliqued borders. I'm thinking of doing vines and flowers on the blank border borderbut the others have me stumped. I quilt by hand, so please don't suggest a stipple design that would be too much for me to handle. Am quilting the main design in the ditch so it is sort of a sawtooth design. Any suggestions would be so welcome!! I have worked so hard on this and want it to turn out amazing.

    ​How about quilting the GMFG shapes into the border?

    I would just quilt around the appliqued letters. I love quilted vines, leaves and flowers. There's always hearts and birds!

    Maybe some bees and butterflys with the GMFG shaped flowers.
