    I am not sure which border I like best. I have laid the blocks and border options out on my bed here:

    What do you think?



    Narrow white with darker wide border beyond (but not black - probably one of the prints in the quilt) and bound with the same.

    Black border Bound with black, too, I think.

    White (well, off-white) border. I don't know what I would do for the binding.

    I like the 2nd option the best.. the narrow white and then wider black. My 2nd choice is black alone. I don't particularly like the white alone. Barb C.

    I'm not fond of the white. It doesn't do much to frame the interior, but I like the white inner with the black outer. The single black would work but I too like the fact that you can see that little black corner block with the combo.

    They are all great, but I too like the second one. It really shows off your blocks and frames your work very well. I really like all of the colors you have chosen. Can't wait to see what you decide on :D

    Thats an awesome quilt, very striking. Just my opinion but I would go with either the 1st or 2nd option, however I like the 2nd option best, it frames your work nicely and shows off your patt well :D .
