    I am trying to decide on a border to finish my kaleidoscope quilt and cannot seem to find anything that really works. So far here are my options. #1 is a light silvery blue, # is a light blue and#3 is just adding more of the dark blue, or maybe I should just leave it the way it is. I'm not too sure about adding a second dark blue border since I have a narrow border to match the sashing. Maybe it would look like an afterthought
    You all have such wonderful idea, thanks for you help.

    It looks like there is a tan/brown in the blocks. Maybe use a tan strip instead of the silvery/lt blue strip. Just a thought. Beautiful quilt:)

    Can you find more of a medium blue...even the light blue seems too light. If you can't find a medium blue, I would go with option 3, that seems the best of the pictures you posted...at least to me.

    So far I have not been able to find more of the right shade of a medium blue. That would be my first choice. I have tried a thin strip of a gold/brown like in the circles, but it looks very depressing

    I am going to assume that you used up all the kaleidoscope fabric (or not enough left over for the wide boarder). That would be my first choice, so my second..... hmmmm.... the light blue.

    Sometimes we need to walk away from our choice and come back later. When I give things a few days to digest (with different light and different mind set), it all comes together and I'm happy.

    Good luck on your choice!

    I like the idea of adding a narrow silver border followed by a wider navy border.
