    I need some suggestions...

    I made this Log cabin quilt out of pink and blue scraps. What color or pattern would you use as the boarder ?

    Wow! What a beautiful quilt. I think you could use either pink or blue. Pink would really brighten it.

    I would look for the least seen color in the quilt and use that if it is a good fabric. Like maybe the red or dark pink (I'm not sure what shade the color is) but it is kind of in the center of the 2nd block from the left.
    I am definately happy and very fulfilled when I am quilting, buying material or reading other quilter's messages on this quilting board.

    Great Idea, I now see what you see. It is a hot pink cotton fabric. I think I will keep this quilt for my extra bedroom, so the pink color will work well. Thanks

    I think Pink would be nice and then maybe use the blue in the binding. Thanks for the suggestion.

    Very pretty. I would use that dark pink/magenta if you have enough.
