    Contemplating border or no border? Black, green or pink? Planning to put black binding on it.

    I would use a narrow border and a wider outer boarder. Not sure what colors, but the borders give the eye a place to rest.

    border would depend on what finished size, but I would vote for a green border with black binding

    skinny black then a wider of your favorite (pink or green)

    it would also help tie in the black binding.

    I would be happy to give this one a home when you're done with it!!

    This one is going to my granddaughter. Her room colors are watermelon, lime green and black. So that's how I came up with this. It went really fast and was the most enjoyable top I have made.

    I think I'd go with a narrow black border, somewhat wider pink border then use the green for the binding, to complete your watermelon look.

    Really pretty quilt!
