    Replace the blue bird part with different fabric.... use red inner border. then maybe a dresden like border of the center fabric?

    The dresden of all one fabric and the double green/blue border are the issues for me.

    Sorry, but you asked for honest opinions.

    I have a few UFOs that somehow worked much better as WHIMS rather than for real.

    I would just use the dresden for a quilt and solid or splotchy fabrics for the borders. Use the rest for another quilt or whatever. I like everything, just not together. I hope not to hurt your feelings.

    JMHO, I would take off the outer border and use it in another project. As for the embroidered fabric, I would use that in another project too. I think it would make a really pretty table runner!! I would want to keep the focus on your dresden plate. Nice job!

    honestly, the border does not fit in any way, a solid color maybe?

    I agree. It looks like parts from a few different projects added all together. I love the center very much!

    The Border is nice, but NOT for the Dresden. The Dresden is lovely but the border overpowers it.

    I would choose a stronger contrast for the Dresden, and a border that frames, but not overpower the Dresden.
    That's my honest opinion .
    I agree the borders are as stong as any I have seen and the dresden opposite
