    I cant decide on the border. Should I go thin or thick, one or two. I think a pieced border would be too busy. Please Help!! I have been sitting on this for months.

    Thin of the dark and wide of the light brown.

    Nice quilt. Great job.

    Okay, here is my reasoning for figuring out borders. I use one of the dimensions in the quilt squares for the width of borders. For this one I would put a narrow border (the size of the squares in the four-patch corners) in the same dark as the star points and a wider border (the size of the four-patch) in the brown of the four-patches. How do you like that?

    I agree with the others--thin of the dark and a wider of the light.

    You could even go with 3 borders starting first with a thin dark brown to frame it then add wider borders of the other 2 prints.
    It really depends on what size you want the finished quilt to be.
