    I need help with borders. I'm making a alphabet quilt for my son and I can't decide which border I should go with.

    It's not completed yet. It's just rows for now.

    What color should I ? Blue or yellow?

    Thanks for looking.

    I'd use them both. A small yellow and a big blue :)

    Babee has a good idea. Yep, I love blue but the yellow gives more 'POP'.

    Thank you for all your suggestion. I'm also thinking of including all those fabric as a border. I'm using a jelly roll so I still have a lot left over.

    2 1/2 border of BLUE
    then a scrap of the left over jelly roll?

    What do you think of idea?

    What an ADORABLE quilt!! Is that machine embroidered? You are doing a fantastic job.

    I vote for the blue too.
