    Go wild.....add a thin border of the pink/fushia color and then the striped fabric. Don't tame it...ramp it up! :thumbup: :thumbup:

    I love stripes with it! Without an inner border. You've got enough orange in the quilt itself. I LOVE the contrast of the paisley with the stripe.

    Perhaps use the stripe with blocks as the cornerstones - maybe orange w/ teal as a square in a square block - so you don't have to deal with doing miters while pressed for time (even though they're really easy).

    I would say the dark teal that is in the blocks is the color you are looking to use as a border. And as a secondary use the dark brown that I see as the tiny cornerstones in the top.

    Like the quilt. I think that if you use a thin black inner boarder and then the strips, it would be great. The black would stop the busy center and pull the little bit that is in the small squares out. The strips would then stand out better and not get lost against the center. Anyway you go, it will be loved.

    I love that second fabric for the border, but that's just me. The baby will like everything. Do what pleases you.

    I am not crazy about the stripes for the border, but it would make a great binding. Whatever you decide it will be great and she will love it.

    I like the idea of a thin solid, then the stripes, with blocks in the corner. It's less stressful and sounds like you need that with so little time. Good luck on your new job!
