    My daughter surprised me with these embroidered blocks she made. I've fussed over them for weeks not knowing what to do with them. I finally just went for it & I'm pleased with the result. SO FAR! Now, I don't know if I should just use a narrow binding or find a pretty floral for a wider border. Any ideas will be appreciated.

    looks good so far --i would go with a floral but an understated one ie pale with creamy background--a miix of your framing colours may look good for the binding---don't forget a pic when its finished

    Yep I agree with Jemma. A soft floral border would look good.

    Beautiful embroidery work. I think a floral border sounds just right for this quilt. Great job.

    I would go for simply the narrow binding. I think those flowers are works of art that deserve their spotlight.
