    I haven't read the whole thread yet, but while the thought is still with me :lol:, I'll share what one quilt's directions had me to do for a pieced border. Use strips WOF) in all the fabrics of the series as used in the quilt. Sew them together to form a piece of fabric (say, 12 or 18 inches wide). When that piece of fabric is formed, slice it in strips the width desired and piece the ends until the desired length is reached. Is that clear as mud?

    Clear as a bell, Gail - I love pieced bindings and this is a great idea!

    There's alot going on already with the colors and pattern and a plain dark blue border would really keep the focus on the top of the quilt and keep it from looking to "busy".

    What I do is put the quilt on the bed and leave it there for a couple days. Every time I walk by the room I look at it to see how it looks, as it is, and it gives me an idea of what I think I should use for a border. Sometimes looking at it from a distance helps. Atleast it does for me.
