    I love it, the colors are so pretty. I like the idea of a pink border it was the first thing that popped into my mind when I first saw it.

    Beautiful quilt! I sure do like your "leftovers"... LOL! I agree with the hot pink inner border. For the outer I'd use the main fabric (because it's so stunning).

    I think a combination of the red, blue and green would make a snazzy border. Maybe small widths of all three colors.

    Really pretty quilt. Perhaps bordered with some of the colours in the hearts.

    You made a really cool top from your left over hearts. sewmom has a very good idea about auditioning different ideas while it is on the wall. Take a few days to play with it and even post some of your choices and get opinions from QB.
    Some one on the QB made a scalloped border from a heart pattern and it was way cool and your hearts would work well with that kind of border in that dark purple. I know there is a pattern for it. If interested I can try to locate it.

    A pink border would be pretty, or choose another color-or two- from the hearts.

    Me too. Such a lovely quilt. How do you have so many leftovers?

    A deep pink that is in the swirled blocks (and also in the heart prints) would be lovely. I'd go for a simple black binding because anything else would take away from your beautiful quilt!

    THis is in reference to my earlier post about a scalloped heart border. I found the magazine it is in. I think your quilt would be so cool with this border.
