    It is a beautiful quilt either way. Consider for whom and for what purpose the quilt is made for and then maybe it might be easier to make a decision.

    I sort of like that pink paisley - it gives it richness - but it's a beauty either way. Ya did good!

    I don't think the pink paisley is needed. I always like a darker outer border.

    I love your quilt. The pink paisley is pretty, but I like it better with the butterflies for the outter border.

    Love it with the pink. It brings out the pink in the center area. Love the quilt!

    Both are very nice, but I think I like the pink on it the best!

    I like it without. The darker border puts a great finish on it. It says it's all done. Very pretty!

    Without the pink border gives your eye a stopping place! But either way is lovely.
    Keep smiling, it makes others wonder what you're up to!

    I like it without the pink paisley border. The center is vibrant enough, I wouldn't detract from it.

    I vote for without the pink, but had a good giggle over the about equal split between all of us. Not sure how you will decide, but either way the quilt is very pretty.

    I think that the paisley border 'softens' the look of your beautiful quilt.

    I like it without the pink border. The black floral forms a perfect frame.

    I like it without the pink; the butterfly one brings out the purple. Guess it depends on what you want to bring out more; I agree without the pink makes it "pop" and looks richer.... I went back to look again and it actually brings out the pink also.

    It is so beautiful ending with the butterfly and ric-rac binding! To me the pink paisly looks like an add on to make it larger and if that is what you really need it does look o.k. but without it, it's just absolutely striking.
