    I believe I would use a narrow yellow/gold and then a wider border of your second choice. She didn't ask for wizards. On the back is fine but I wouldn't put them on the front.

    oh yes go with the yellow/gold from favoritefabric.com looks perfect. The aqua is just to much gizmos with whats in your center blocks. Will be great for backing.

    It's very nice - I like your color choices - the aqua is perfect with that.

    I don't care for the light wizard fabric for the outside border. Just my opinion on that.


    You could just bind it at the size it is - it looks "complete" to me right now - if that would be "big enough"
    That's exactly what I would have said.
    Lord, please keep your arm around my shoulder and your hand over my mouth.

    Just saw this thread and as I was reading it, before I got to the end and the photo of your beautiful finished quilt, I envisioned it finished just as you did it. I love it ... great job! :-)

    I vote for the wizards or a yellow that matches the suns.

    I agree. I'd use a narrow border (as much as an inch) of the gold in the moons and then the dark star blue.

    Very pretty! Perfect for a boy, too. She will love it...and he will, too, as he grows up.

    I have something very very similar, almost the same. I have around 3 yards or so. I'm in Maryland. If you want me to send it to you, I will, but I'm literally getting ready to go out the door on a quilt retreat. If you can wait till the weekend, I'll send you a picture.

    if you have a joanns nearby they have this great stary fabric that would be great as a boarder. I have used it in about 6 different quilts for little boys incuding my ds's twin size bed quilt. it has all the colors in it and is really perdy.
    when life gets you down go and talk with a little kid. They will help you work out even the worst problems with their simple logic.

    The finished quilt is perfect. That narrow yellow border is just what it needed. Beautiful!

    Since she wanted dark, I would border it with the dark stars that you found. I really like it so far.

    I am not into wizards and such so I would use one of your other choices.

    I love it just as you have it. I like that blue fabric you used for the border and the yellow sets it all off. Nice!!

    While I like the wizards, I'd leave it off the front in case the lady isn't fond of it. I'd got with the other star fabric.

    If you have a soft brown instead of a gold would that still make it pop and then the wizard. I really like your quilt.

    I think it looks ok without another border. If you don't have a good yellow, maybe a narrow aqua and then the dark blue with stars for the outer border and binding would be my suggestion.

    Personally I like the dark star fabric. The quilt top is very cute. Not crazy about the wizards.
