    Leftover Hearts

    Another bunch of leftovers into a top. Not sure if it needs borders or not and what color to use??

    When I am in this position, I will put this on my design wall and pin a couple different border options on different sides. Then i either take a picture with my camera or just see where my eye goes when i walk in the room. Sounds kinda silly but it works. Sometimes i can decide right away, other times it might be days. Hope this helps.

    I was thinking a pink since there is pink in the hearts and swirls of it on the purple.

    Love your hearts

    Quilt top is beautiful. I think a pink that is inside the heart, or fuscia, perhaps green. I agree with auditioning a few different colors to see which one works best for you.

    Very pretty quilt....I think maybe an inner border of the hot pink but would have to audition the final border.

    I love heart quilts, and I really love yours. I'm sure you will have just the right finish on it.

    I also think a border would finish the top off.
    one of the colours in the hearts.
