    This is my first King (120x120) size quilt made from this BQ Pattern from Maple Island. It is also my first attempt at working with Kona Bay Asian fabrics. My question is: Which border looks the best with the overall body of the quilt? I can see both pros and cons in each. The black on the edge will be the narrow quilt binding...nothing more. Thank you for the help!

    I like the black, it keeps more with the simple, clean Asian look. That quilt is stunning!

    I like the second one because it highlights the "asian-ness" even more

    The first is very elegant and keeps the simplicity of this beautiful quilt very sharp.
