    Use the same size and color of pieces, and stand them on point, instead of into the star shape. I would think just one row would be pretty without overwhelming. I agree that adding a dark in now would not work for this quilt.

    I'd try a narrow yellow. a narrow white and then a wider purple.

    Ok Pam I am understanding.. she is just going to fold it back up until I get there.... sometimes 2 brains is better than one... well in this case our husbands say we have 1 brain between the 2 of us .. but who listens to THEM anyway!


    Thanks for all the advice...

    My first thought was to add some light blue to set off the wonderful light and bright colors.

    The colors make me think of sunrise/sunset. Nice block (center).

    There is a book called "the border workbook" that has patterns for pieced borders that you could use to lengthen the top and bottom evenly and compliment your star. I would start with a narrow yellow or white border, then a couple pieced borders and end with a thicker border to tie it all together. Your quilt is beautiful, I hope to try one of these patterns someday!

    First, I love the treatment of the Texas(radiant?) star pattern and the colors your picked.

    I would audition the white border and make sure it doesn't detract from the white already in the quilt before cutting any fabric...

    Another idea might be to finish the on-point pieced squares you have at the top and bottom (you could throw some interesting quilting motif in the solid yellow that would come out of that), and then do a diamond-in-square border to finish out the row. (If I were at home, I'd throw this into EQ6 and show you what I mean, but I'm at work on my lunch break)

    I like the idea of adding a white border and then add rows to the ends.
