    The pattern for this quilt calls for a 2-3 inch black border, and then another border....and I can't decide what I want to do!! My mother doesn't think the bigger border is the rght one to choose. That it might take away from the rest of the quilt. Any suggestions would be most appreciated!!

    Oh I love this quilt!!! Personally I would go with one of the colors that is in the quilt itself. It is so bright and the border should be just as bright.... but that is my opinion.

    i too would pick one of the vibrant solid colors and i would use that swirl print for the binding maybe 0.5-1.0 in size.

    If you have more of the bright fabrics left, I'd put the black row first, then cut squares the same size as the inner coloured squares & grade the colours towards whatever colour is reaching out to the edge. And then another black border & then bind with the patterned fabric.

    I would also go with the more vibrant color gang. I love the swirly pattern, but maybe for the binding.

    Beautiful quilt!! I think I would use one of the solid colors as the final border also.

    Your quilt is very pretty and vibrant!! I like the black border with one of your block colors, as well. The think the swirly fabric would be distracting.

    I two would put a small black border and then use several of the bright colors from the quilt....... finishing with a black binding.

    Your quilt is wonderful...........
