    Kristen, you're putting together a wonderful quilt - the border with the smaller dots really finish it off! You've got great instincts - this is a very stylish and happy quilt!

    Very Nice. I love what you have going on and would suggest adding another blue border the same width as the one in the photo right after the smaller circles before the binding goes on. Cute dog!!

    It looks nice just as it is, but you could add another border to it.

It looks very up-to-date and I should think it would appeal to the younger generation.
    I agree about the blue border. It will set it off better. Audition the colors and see which one will pop out at you.

    I like the smaller dots in the border - gives continuity to the pattern of the larger dots. It's going to be super when it is finished.

    And the quilt inspector is cute too!

    Thank you everyone for you suggestions. My DD saw the border and added that she thought the border circles should be smaller than they are.
    SO, I am going to make them a bit smaller, space them out a little farther, and use more blue than orange. And I like the add another blue border.
