    I need some opinions on which color of border I should add to this quilt. I need to make it longer and as you can see it is square I need a border at the top and bottom and then another one on all sides. Please let me know what you think.. I am open to any ideas on this border situtation. Please help!!!

    (The black is not on the quilt it is the rug it is sitting on!!)

    That is stunning. What about a narrow purple border and then black? It looks really good on the black rug.

    If you are wanting to make it a rectangle, I would add a row at either end of squares and set every other one on point, so it would be square/diamond/square/diamond..... just like they are in the block. They could be all purple, or alternating colors. If you alternated pink and yellow, then your final border could be purple. That's the first thing that came to my mind. It's a pretty block. Good job!

    What about using the same colors, and star pints and making a harlequin type of arrangement to add to the top and bottom to make rectangular.

    I would also put in a small border to define the center before I added the other strips, then border the same all around.

    I immediately thought a white border all around would draw out the white and make it all sparkle. I also like the idea of another row of blocks on point on the top and bottom. I love the color combination.

    I love the idea of a white inner border too but I wouldn't get too complicated on borders b/c the the quilt is so lovely and intricate on its own. I vote plain borders- narrow white, then maybe one of the colors in the quilt. I really don't think black does anything for it.
    Great job!!!!!!!!!!!! :D
