    Your opinion on border color, please

    It's almost time to sew the border! Which color would you choose?

    How about both? I can see a thin(1-1.5 inch)frame of purple and a broader yellow sash.

    I like the purple for its zing. The yellow gives a softer, dreamy effect. Which do you want? Lovely block, by the way.

    Ooh so pretty. I like QuiltnNan's suggestion. I think the layout and color scheme of the three borders balances and shows of the blocks.

    I like that. So would you make the binding in the same purple?

    I like the solutions you suggested too. Isn't it wonderful to have a design challenge solved so easily? That's what friends are for!

    I think the purple on purple pops more, but the purple on yellow mellows this out.
