    I am making this pink and black quilt for my DGD graduation present. I was going to use the floral for the backing ; but she wants flannel. Do you think the floral would work as a border or not? the pink in the floral almost looks lavendar next to the pink in the quilt. Thanks for looking.

    I think the floral fabric is gorgeous. I just don't think it works as a border with this quilt.

    Your quilt has a clean crisp graphic quality without the border. The floral fabric looks almost embroidered, beautiful, but it seems like it belongs on a fancier quilt.

    i'm sorry but i think that fabric for the border would take away from the beauty of the quilt

    I think this lovely quilt stands on its own. Perhaps a solid color would still show up the strong pattern.

    Nice quilt, she'll treasure it for years, since she had a hand in picking colors.

    I agree with the others. Maybe a different color like pink and black stripe.

    Your quilt is beautiful, but I have to agree that your other fabric will stand out more with a solid color border.

    In my opinion, I wouldn't use the floral fabric. I would use the pink or black. The quilt is beautiful.
