    Your quilt is lovely but I think a navy border or binding will make it pop.

    Love your quilt - very pretty! Our favorite LQS owner is a designer of fabric/patterns, etc. and is in all the magazines. She taught that a 1/4 " trim of a "pop" color before the border makes for a beautiful finish. One of my friends has been doing that on all her quilts and they are stunning. Just a thought ===

    Love the quilt, dark border might be nice to make it pop....Be sure to post the finised piece if you decide to border it.......would love to see how it turned out.

    All I can say is "WOW!!". Absolutely stunning. If the quilt size is what you want, I'd just do the darker border & binding (I like the navy idea). If you need it just a little bit bigger, I'd do a 3" navy border, followed by a 2" strip that alternates various colors in the quilt (those would be 2" long each) and finish up with another 3" navy border with binding in navy. It would just nicely frame all the gorgeous blocks. How are you planning to quilt it?

    I'm with cheaha. I love it!! Can't have too much pink IMHO.

    Since the pink is broken up by other colors, it's not at all "too much!" Beautiful! I think any color border would be lovely.
