    Really pretty...good to feast my eyes on! Really admire the #1 border...i think it is in keeping with the colors of the block.

    That's my pick, too! This is one adorable little quilt, no matter what border you use! What are you going to use it for? I have a BD this month... LOL!

    I like any of the dark borders. They bring out the color contrasts in the central piecework. Beautiful!

    #2 sewed these strips together
    #3 cut it down to 3" square
    #4 sewed 4 of those squares together
    #5 once sewed together I trimed down to 4 3/4" squares
    #6 also cut some circular/flowery batiks pieces into 4 3/4" squares
    #7 alternated each square and than stitched them up 3 squares per row, with 3 rows for a total of 9 mini squares

    Next you will see half a dozen different color borders I have put on the wall next to te mini pieced top trying to decide which looks best so I'm going to ask y'all if you would view it and let me know which one you like best.

    Thanks
    Definitely the dark purple...frames the quilt and makes the blocks pop! Love your colors and pattern!

    One of the guilds I belong to is sponsoring a silent auction and the funds earned from it will benefit the Historical Society in that area.

    I'm not much of a quilter and a new one at that so I felt I might be able to do something halfway decent and do one for the auction.

    I much prefer just designing and creating and let someone else do the quilting but I think its time I gave it a try.

    Sew pretty! That last dark purple for a border really makes things "pop"!
    Be a blessing to others, as you may entertain angels unaware!

    I'm partial to the green and the two purples. If I had to pick just one... I'd go with that last border option.

    They are all so beautiful and I love love love the batik fabrics. But if I were to pick just one I really love the dark purple border. The inside just pops!
