    Parquet Quilt - needs border input

    I am about to finish up this Positively Parquet quilt, by UCan2, and can't decide the borders. The pattern calls for the 6" border with 6" squares, but I am kind of partial to the 3" border. What do you think?

    I, too, like the smaller border with no squares in the corners. This is a beautiful quilt. Thank you for sharing.

Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.

    I don't like the bigger border. The smaller one is just right.

    I also like the narrower border. It seems to emphasize the energy of the quilt. Beautiful quilt!

    I like the smaller border! it seems more in scale with the rest of the quilt. I think te bigger reads as too much solid .

    I'm in favor of the larger border. It's a beautiful quilt, I like it.

    I like both borders about the same. Nice job on your quilt.
