    It's not.....if you are referring to the entry above that mentions DP - she means it to stand for Drunkard's Path

    I would put a solid colored sashing all around the pieced part of the quilt--I think it would set off the border fabric, which I really like. I'm thinking maybe a navy blue.?

    I like that the pieced center seems to float above the border. Its beautiful. Love it!

    Maybe not enough contrast? Still very pretty, though.

    I really like your quilt as it is, but agree that the print border seems somehow disconnected to the bold and beautiful drunkards path you have created.

    My suggestion is to try various widths of dark and light inner borders to see which creates the look you want. Then go with it!

    I think it looks great with the floral border.

    I think it is a great compliment to the drunkard path. It makes it pop.
    I am definately happy and very fulfilled when I am quilting, buying material or reading other quilter's messages on this quilting board.

    I agree it needs a narrow floater boarder of the light fabric between the quilt and the boarder you have chosen ...
