    This is my first D9P and I was very happy with how it looked until I added the borders. I didn't have any fabric left from making the top, so I went and bought some, but I'm afraid it doesn't really blend well. This is going to be a Christmas gift for my in-laws, so I want to make sure it looks okay... the binding will be the same as inner border and the backing the same as outer border. Please let me know what you think.

    Thanks in advance!!!

    Your green borders bring out the green in the small squares, it looks fine to me.

    A lovely quilt but I can understand your concern. I'd use a "pink" thread and stitch between the two greens to show more blending. Gosh, you may have already used some decorative stitch there. If so, perhaps some thin pink ribbon can be woven through the stitched area. Regardless, they will be delighted!

    From what I can see, it looks great. As Lacelady said, the green in the main area is brought out by the border fabric. Perhaps it would help if you posted a pic showing the full quilt.

    Well all I can say is that if they don't love it, I surely would! So you can just send it on to me! LOL! Seriously, I think it is fine the way it is but if you did want to add some pink ribbon or stitching, that would be fine too!
