    What fabric would you guys put for boarders? I was thinking may be green in a 2" with a purple binding. But not sure. Would have to purchase green for it though. I do know my boo boo which is glaring at me right now.

    top almost done. YEAH!!!!!

    Heheheheh... you should not have said anything about a boo boo.. took me a long time to see it.. hehhehee.. I love the purple. how big are you wanting it to be? Are you wanting it as a lap size or a bed size? Hard to know. Will the top be only on bed and boarders fall over sides? Or is it meant for a wall hanging?

    can you do a skinny inner border and one outside that larger? either the green or the purple can be the outside and binding if you have enough fabric. very pretty quilt!

    Purple would frame it beautifully...I would use a narrow purple and then come back with a wider in the green and bind with purple.

    I would do a narrow green and then border it with the purple and bind with the green. I wouldn't add another color.
