    Bali Star Wedding Quilt - All Done

    Some of you were following the progress on my bali star wedding quilt! Well, you will be happy to know I am all done, except the border.

    I'm waffling between red and black ... ideas?

    Here's the 99% done product! I'm pretty happy with it!

    Gorgeous! I'd like to see the red, and then go with predominantly black pillows. But that's just me

    Either way, you can't lose. It will be perfect either way!

    WOW! Absolutely beautiful quilt. You did a fantastic job on it. No idea on border but I think you will make a great decision either way. Whatever you chose will make a great finish.

    Oh thanks so much for showing us the "nearly" finished product. I would love to see it with red on the sides.

    I have been following your progress and I have to say you have created a masterpiece in a very small amount of time. The quilt is absolutely stunning. I think both colours would make a great border.

    Hugs

    WOW! Beautiful.
    I would do a double border, inside black (1 to 4 inch), outside red (twice the black).
    Or vice-versa.

    I am sure you will make the right border decision for you. For me, it would be red.

    Wowee!!! You did a fabulous job on this quilt. Either border would look great - I am wondering how you plan to quilt it? It is just beautiful ~smile~

    Wow quilt.

    For border, i was going to suggest a narrow red, very thin white, and then a wider black border
