    I have finally sewn all my blocks together but now would like some advice on the border...would you make a double border...a small green and a larger pink one or would you just make it pink all around..one wide border...any help appreciated.Blocks are 5 x 5.

    very pretty, I would put 2 borders on it (green and pink) that way the green on the quilt will pop out!

    Personally, I would add the pink sashing all the way around to frame it. Then maybe do a narrow border in the green like your cornerstones and then the pink.

    I'd continue the pink sashing, maybe even add the green sashing blocks, do a very thin white border, then a pink one or the plaid. (just to be different) :)

    What a beautiful quilt. I love the colors and your blocks turned out awesome. I would do a narrow green and then a wider pink. Thanks for sharing with us.
