    I am working on a jigsaw puzzle quilt. What kind of border would you do? Need some suggestions.

    I went to http://quilting.about.com
    In the upper right hand corner there's a search box. Type in
    Jigsaw Puzzle.
    The picture shows a baby quilt with no border.

    If you use very colorful material, then I would put in a black or navy blue border.

    I used 3 borders on mine..... a narrow width black border as a first border, then a wider scrap border and an outside black border.

    My quilt, I think, has too many prints and not enough plain fabric. So it looks too cluttered. I can find so many clothes with flowers, and prints but am having a hard time finding plain clothes to cut out.
    Maybe if I can get my daughter to show me how to post a picture, I can show it and get some more advice.

    If you feel it is beginning to look too cluttered, then a solid black border would be just the thing. I have done that in the past and it really ties it all together.

    That's perfect!!!! What a fabulous quilt. Mine won't be as colorful, but I'm not expecting too much for my first one. This is to get me back in the saddle of quilting again. Thanks for the pic.
