    I would use the circles for the border and the yellow for the binding, which will put the yellow even further away from the yellow squares, thereby disguising the fact they do not match...but then, this is a quilt...who says anything has to match anyway? I think...and this is only MY opinion, that whatever you do, this quilt will be the cutest!!!!

    Same here.

    Who made the frog fabric?
    I don't have the name of the fabric...I had purchased it precut off ebay last year.... wasn't happy with the wonky squares so she sent more and so I'm really not fond of asking her anything about it or I'd go back to her.

    Yes, I agree. I think the circles are perfect and add another dimension versus having the same frog fabric. Very nice quilt. I would love to see it when you are finnished.

    if it's for a child, go with the circles; if for an adult, the yellow.

    Sorry I don't have any frog fabric either. I like the circles because all the colors are in the quilt, and it adds to the playfulness of the quilt.

    I like the yellow better than the circle fabric. If you have enough of the circle fabric, could you do a green border and use the circles for the backing?

    I like the yellow. Looks like it is a tough choice for you. A split decision on our part?????

    I love the circles.
    The circles really bring out the blues and purples in the quilts.
    The yellows not matching is distracting for me. I am one that really like a match where possible. Even if they did match I think I just fine the circles to remind me of the water frogs would play in and love the colors. I like the 3 borders.

    Have you thought of making piano keyes using both fabrics, yellow and circles? Just a suggestion.

    I like the one on the right. I love the frog fabric. I have a grandson that was born Feb 2010 He was born with Cerebreal Palsy. Well of course his name is Jeremiah. "Was a Bullfrog." So we love frogs. Not sure if you know what FROG means. Forever Rely on GOD..

    I like it with the lavender and blue. If larger size is needed then the bubble or soft blue small print.

    Yellow also here, however, you could use the bubbles for the backing. I like it.
