    I do like the paisley, but I wish you had mitered your corners with the black print border. Would you have enough fabric to do that? I love mitered corners when it comes to a border print.

    I like both, but then, I have a thing for paisley. Are you adding a border to grow the quilt to a certain size? Because if not, the butterfly border is just beautiful as is. Hmmm. Whatever you decide, it looks great!

    I like it WITHOUT, even though I think the pink paisley is very pretty. My reason: I think the added pink border dilutes the contrast of the dark brown floral. It's a lovely quilt and I think that wide dark brown finishes it beautifully all by itself.

    I would vote for not adding the pink. The black border is beautiful and really makes the beautiful quilt pop. Really love the print in the black. Is it a Moda print?

    All though I love the pink - have it myself. I would not add it to the quilt.
    The pink is too busy next to the butterflys.

    I like it best with just the paisley. Wonder if you have considered mitering the border?

    Wow, by now I am sure you have made a decision...not sure how, though! I like it without the pink, but agree it depends on how large you want the quilt to be. Beautiful, either way.

    I personally like the dark, I think brings the focus to the beautiful quilt it is framing. Nice job!

    I think that I would have to go without the pink. Something so rich looking about the black on black.
