    It is amazing, afire with color. If it was mine, I would use a dark burnt orange, Sage Green or Rust. And since it is a fall theme, maybe a large outer border of Large Fall Leaves in every warm fall color you could think of.
    I know what ever you do will be perfect.

    That's going to be beautiful. Black might make a nice sashing. It would both frame them well and be fall-ish. On the other hand, I see some pretty consistent hints of raspberry and of green. Those might work well. I don't know if the picture is representing the colors well though. If you look at the picture on the board I think you'll see what I mean.

    My scrappy BOM quilt from the swap theme before I did stars. Did it in the strip quilt method that I used on the batik quilt from BOM that I posted a few months ago. Since the front blocks are scrappy, figured I'd use a scrappy back, too. It was meant to be a summer blanket, used a very low loft batt but still too warm for summer. Since it is a blanket, the ends were angled to make the tuck-in easier.

    Finally finished this, and now I can get to the star quilt!

    Back is a little ugly, but it gets the job done!

    I vote for a deep burnt orange and dark brown, not sure which should be sash and which to be border. I think i personally would go with burnt orange border. Gorgeous fall quilt, Florence.
