    What do you think about the border? Is it too busy? Should I do something else?

    Only a portion of the quilt and I still need to put blue borders on top and bottom

    I thought the blues circles in the border should be more numerous and the oranges smaller

    The Orange would be binding

    I believe a solid would frame it out better. One of the colors in the dots.

    I love the dot border! Maybe spread them out a little further apart? :D:D:D

    I like your plan also. It gives a modern upbeat look to the quilt.

    I second the suggestions above. I like the idea of the border of blue dots and I agree that they need to be a little further apart, but it would be okay to leave them as is. It would look more finished to add another blue border, maybe a little wider than the one dividing the body of the quilt and the border of dots. It looks very up-to-date and I should think it would appeal to the younger generation.

    I like the way you've done the dots smaller and closer together in the border. It creates a really nice look.

    Do you have enough of the blue to do a second blue border before the orange binding? It is not really necessary, but I think it would look nice.
