    Sorry just couldn't resist that! You might need sunglasses,it's kinda loud. I making this for my cousin, "they just got hitched "as we say in Bama. They have modern taste when it comes to decorating and her wedding was B&W with dark pink & red accents. I need help with the border, the pattern calls for the borders you see plus black binding, do you all think its to busy,would it look better with just solid borders, I'm stumped.thanks

    Wow, that is a beautiful quilt, I would never have thought to use that color combination, but it works so well together as you have it there. Great job on the color selection and execution of the top.

    On the border, I think it looks great as you have it. I'm not sure what you had planned for the binding, but I would go with a solid black to tie it all up together.

    Great quilt!

    I love the black/white/red combonation...it's my favorite. You've done a great job. Think I would prefer piano keys over the checkerboard but the checkerboard is nice and you've already got some of it done. Definitely a black binding. Definitely.

    Looks great. I like your borders. As for binding a black or black on black would be nice.

    It's beautiful. I love the multicolored border. I would then bind it in black to frame the whole thing.
