    I was so into this wall hanging. I had it all cut out and wasn't happy with the first batch of centers so I started over. Then I came down with a bad, bad case of bursitis in my shoulder. I finally got it all pieced together. I was so careful doing my measuring and cutting; I just don't think it was meant to be. Not happy at all how some of the blocks (didn't) measure up but need some suggestions as to what color I should border it in. Thanks for your suggestions.

    I agree orang, but maybe a small border first, of black, or perhaps that lovely print.

    I would go with a narrow orange border and a wider brown one. That is really pretty.

    do small brown border then go with the gray large to put in swag designs make the pineapples pop right out.

    Still not getting the police statements. The police are helpers. Well, when criminals are involved ;-) I think it looks fine. I would somehow incorporate, if possible, the background you chose. Hard for me to say because I am not sure what you are seeing as an end game as far as size and usefulness.
