    I am working my first D9P for either practice or for my DGD. I have 2 borders on it but need it to be around 3" wider.

    I don't have any of the frog fabric (bought it in squares off ebay) or I'd use it for the border so I need to choose between the circle design or the yellow.

    The yellow isn't an exact match for the little yellow squares but since they won't be touching I think it will be fine.

    Soooooo folks, what's your opinions on the 2 choices --
    circles or plain yellow?

    Of course if anyone has any of the same little frog fabric, I'd be tickled to either buy/trade something for it. I'd need about 1 1/2 yards give or take.

    The binding and back will be the same green as in the center of the quilt.

    Thanks for your thoughts..

    Give it a sec while I add the 4th picture pretty please :)

    I like the circles, they remind me of water bubbles.

    lol..too cute. I like it without a border. I would probably do a very thin yellow border.

    I like the yellow. But whatever you decide the quilt will be adorable. Can't help you out with the frog fabric but it is very cute!

    What adorable frog fabric. Sorry I don't have any to help you out with. Personally I like the yellow border best, although I really like the fabric with the circles but not with this quilt. Either way it is a very cute quilt.

    I like the yellow. To me the circles distract me. Just my humble opinion......

    as much as i love the circles (reminds me of puddle jumping) I think the yellow pulls the quilt together more.

    I like the yellow as well. The circle fabric is cute but too busy for the border.

    Yellow, but use the circles on something else. It's a cute fabric.

    Yellow! Circles detract from cute frogs.
