    A light narrow border and a wider dark border to "frame" your stunning work of art would look wonderful.

    Not for my granddaughter. There's nothing that's too much pink for her. She can't be the only one. I also love the quilt. Maybe GD takes after GM

    I agree with a different color, then dark pink to set it off.

    I would not put a border and bind it in a darker color. It's very pretty.

    The white border softens the pink and perhaps a darker color to bind the quilt to add a little more contrast. Your quilt is so awesome, just love it to bits!!!! Whatever you decide, it will be perfect!

    you never cease to amaze me with the handsewing pics i see of your beautiful quilts. such labor! i think it needs a border to let your eyes rest and draw out the individuality of the quilt. if the cream is already sewn on, i would finish it with a darker color. if its just basted to see what you think, i would put a small 1.5 inch border in a darker color and then a lighter larger outer border, the pink would be good. either way, it is absolutely beautiful! you have such a talent!! can't wait to see what you can do with your LA!
