    I always like a frame and suggest one of the brightest colors like red.

    I think a black would frame the quilt beautifully which such a beautiful quilt deserves.

    I think the black. That is a beautiful quilt. Maybe as someone suggested earlier some prairie points or would that be just too much? It is going to be beautiful whqatever you do.

    O.k. you lost me on this one. I understand the piano keys and black border but not the other three. Just what is the adding machine tape or newsprint or telephone book pages? Gerbie

    I would use a solid color border, maybe black or navy blue?

    I think the black border in black would be great. It would set off the center wonderfully.
