    I love the quilt and the orange color is what I like so why not add a purple as the outer borderand then bind it in a bright orange. Beautiful job .

    If it was me I would lean towards the 'purple' for a boarder, making the oranges pop more. IMHO
    What a beautiful quilt! What a lucky Mom you have! I agree with purple for a wider border. I can't wait to see this when it's all done!

    Your quilt is very pretty! I'm really learning to like oranges! I bet she will love it!
    Be the best that you can be at everything you do.
