    a small lap quilt almost finished. It's a sampler style.

    was wondering if I want to put an outside border on or leave it with just the flower dark border.

    What do you think?

    proposed outer border - very light sage

    Personally, I would leave it as it is and use the green for binding. It is a very pretty quilt right now.

    What are you planning on using for the binding?

    Binding would be the light green. Not enough purple left.

    I love your proposed outer border and would bind with dark violet.

    I would just bind it with the same fabric as the existing border. It is beautiful as is.
