    This is what I am using for my friend's baby quilt. Do you thnik it looks okay color wise? What changes would you make? I was going to add border/sash between each 12 inch block and around the whole quilt but, ran out of the cute print before I could add another row to make it 12 inch. So I am undecided on how to do the border/sash and what color. What do you think?

    Thanks,
    JOY

    My first baby quilt (unfinished)

    If you have enough of the solid, you could do a border of 1x4 inch strips all around, with a narrow solid border of one of the colors between the strips and the blocks. I like the layout of the quilt, by the way. It has interest without being too busy.

    Very cute. Since it is a baby quilt, I would go with either the white or cream (or is it yellow?) solid.

    I think it is really cute. Personally I would add a border of one of the bright colors like the red, blue or green. It would make it really pop and frame the quilt nicely. Just an opinion, but it is rally cute!

    I agree, Vicki, it is a really cute looking quilt top.

    Good job!

    It's a cute quilt. I would add a solid-color border.

    Babies love the primary colors. I would go with blue or red.

    I think a border of 2" strips of the red, yellow and blue/or green would make it pop
