    it looks great. i like your idea of a large black border with 4P cornerstones. then you can do some pretty quilting in the large border with some jewel variegated thread.

    Your quilt is so very beautiful. I'm sure you will determine what border will work best--you certainly know what you're doing :).

    That is absolutely stunning!

    Just to be different for the border.... what about a nice wide strip of black, with a chain of coloured squares the size of the smaller squares in the body of the quilt.
