    The gold border makes the whole quilt pop. Beautiful quilt.

    The quilt you see, is a part of me.
    In your hand is the sum of my parts
    My mind, my body and a piece of my heart.
    Wrap in it, lay on it, cry, and dream.
    It's made to help you know what love means.

    My vote goes to the gold border, and if you decide not to do that - green binding

    I agree. In the first picture I notice the blocks first...in the second I notice mostly the gold border around the blocks. I vote for the first picture with just the green border. Its beautiful.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    I think the gold border detracts the eye from the center where you've done beatiful work. I would go with the green border, only, and also bind in green.

    #1- How big do you want the quilt to be. Adding the gold border will make the quilt several inches bigger. That said I think that it would look nice with a smaller green border (about 1/2 the width it is now) and then the wider gold border. If using the gold border then bind in gold. IMHO

    I like just the green in the first example and would suggest binding in green also.

    However, if you want it larger, then:

    1. Do an 'insert flange' like the second example in post #9 here: http://www.quiltingboard.com/main-f1...s-t203182.html

    2. Follow up with another green border.

    3. Bind w/green.

    I agree. The outside gold border draws my eye away from the center and the beautiful work in each block. I'd leave it with the green border, with a green binding. You've done beautiful work!

    Their both beautiful. With the green border the foces is on the blocks. With the Gold border the blocks fade
    into the background and the foces is the gold. Just depends on what you want. I think I would just go with
    the green border.

    I thought the same thing. It would be pretty either way, but the gold border does seem to draw my eye away from the center of the quilt.

    I personally like the 2 borders with possibly a 3rd small (1" finished) blue border between the green and gold. Please post when you decide.

    No to the second border. The design floats with just the green border...unless you need it to be a larger quilt. To me, it looks like too much of a good thing.

    I think just the green. The additional gold borders too overwhelming. Pretty quilt!
