    Ok I got 2 different pieces to use for the border on my quilt. The pattern calls for the dark blue. I thought it was to dark so I picked a lighter print. I'm not to sure about it. Any in put would be great! :)

    Hi Okie, great job on those blocks! I really like them. As for the border, I think its going to be a personal preference kind of thing. I prefer the darker blue as it tends to frame the quilt and makes the yellow really pop in the other border and in the centers of the wheels. Either way will look good though. Keep showing it..I can't wait to see what you decide.

    I think the darker blue makes the yellow pop as well! Either one would be nice though!

    Love your blocks. But I think I like the darker border too -- makes all the other colors really pop.

    My vote for what it's worth is with the dark blue. It seems to bring out the yellow more. Love the quilt!
