    Made this topper, need to add 15" to sides... wondering if I should just do it in the cream, want it so that eye is drawn to top.. bed ruffle will be the paisely (dark fabric).
    Another thought was to have the few 8 point stars ( same colors as in the topper) just floating with cream background..
    I am just stuck... I need a new set(s)of eyes, Look forward
    thank you all in advance!

    WOW -- beautiful quilt!! I think a large cream border would look nice, especially if you're using a dark bed skirt -- That would be easiest way to finish it. However, the idea of a few smaller "floating stars" in the border would also be beautiful! :D

    Well, i have a different opinion. :) While I think a cream would look lovely, I think the paisley fabric would look nice and set off the center a little better. Plus, the edges and sides send to get rubbed up against, hence show dirt. The darker will hide that sort of thing.

    It looks great the way it is, but if you say you want more, I would do the cream and then a bit of the brown and then the binding in brown.

    I agree, the paisley fabric would make an awesome outter border and not show dirt as much as the cream. What's the name of this pattern? I really like it. You've done a fabulous job...
