    These are the options I have. This is a pattern from a magazine that I altered. These options are all stash fabric. I like the red little border I put on and if I had more of that fabric I would use that, but I just had enough to put on what I did. The white fabric with little pink flowers is in the top and I have enough not to piece. The green I have enough not to piece but the pick flowered print I would have to piece. I don't mind piecing just don't know which to use. Suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Kyia :D

    pinkish flowered print, would have to piece this one, that is ok if it looks the best

    other option.

    The whole quilt is using flower prints. Some are from the 10" block swap.

    Thanks for your help.

    white background with pink flowers and green stems. This print is in the quilt top.

    looks like you already have small border of red - if it were me I would follow up with the darker blue with the flowers - I don't think I would use a lighter color next to the red.

    You can take 6" pieces of the different materials in it and make a scrappy border all around the red.
    6in long and however wide you want it to be.

    I like the pinkish flowers or the suggestion of the scrappy border.
