    Well, the OW Q top is done. Now which way to finish the border? What does everyone like! The finished size does not matter in this one. It will be about 75" sq. when complete If there are any alternate suggestions I would appreciate them too!

    thanks for looking.

    I like the bottom pic and would bind with the same pink. Gorgeous quilt! Love your fabrics.

    I love the quilt. I like the last one also and would probably bind with the same pink or maybe a little darker.

    Love it, maybe one of the medium pinks as the first border, then the light one and finish with the dark one you posted as a stopper in the last picutre?

    keep it simple so as to not detract from this great quilt

    I also like the creamy border in the last picture, and would use the darker pink as the binding. Or, if you don't have enough of that, use the floral for the binding. That would also look good. The quilt itself is absolutely lovely and the floral right next to it would take away from the basic design, but it could look very good with a wide border between it and the binding.

    If you had enough of your HST left over I think a border of them in a width to match your pattern would be out of thisi world!
