    Somewhat narrow yellow. Looks really good. I LOVE the circles but overall appeal on this quilt, I think the yellow is the winner on the outer border.

    I like the circles, maybe bound with the yellow. I think the wide yellow border would be too much 'pop' and would steal you eye away from the center of the quilt.

    I sent a block of the month frog block to my partner for that block. Yes, I have some left, but I'm keeping it. I never heard from my partner of the month.

    It is called a "disappearing 9 patch" or "D9P".

    If you do a search on here, you'll see several really good tutorials of how to do it.

    http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-40144-1.htm is the one that I found to be the easiest.

    I started out with 4" squares. I had the frogs in the outer corners, the yellow just in the center and the green in the "cross" of the 9 patch.

    http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-78255-1.htm shows how to keep a directional print straight up and down also.

    I'm a newbie to using patterns and this one seemed to be easy and make sense to me. I did find I had to square up each of the new blocks before I sewed them back together regardless of how carefully I made my seams. Guess my eyeballs are crooked.

    Have fun ... if you have any questions, post a question or search the board and you'll find lots of helpful people.

    The yellow makes it all pop. If you wanted to make a thin border of the bubbles then add the yellow that would look great. Cute quilt.

    My voite is for the circles. It makes all of the colors in the froggie print pop. The yellow makes only the inner yellow stand out. My two cents. Love the quilt, such adorable froggies.

    I agree. I think it would look wonderful with just a thin yellow border, or even a yellow binding.

    For me,the circles seem to compete with the cute frog material. I like the yellow border the best.

    Sorry if this has been covered in one of the other pages (didn't read them all), but do you mean 3" each side or 3" total? Because a 3" border and a 1.5" border are very different! Anyway, I personally quite like the circles fabric for the border and then the yellow fabric for the binding, but it would look lovely either way.

    I like them both. How about putting a yellow border and use the circles for the binding??? Either way I think it is really cute.

    I like the circles. I don't think it's too busy at all. It's a great color too.

    I like the yellow border. It seems to pull the colors together.
