This is an Xmas quilt using the "Isn't Christmas Jolly?" line of precut strips. It is a little on the "black" side for a Xmas project but as you get closer, you can see the Xmas prints. I will look to Charismah to add some "Jolly" to it when the time comes. Until then...borders.

Question I - Border colors
Do you like all red? #1
Red and black? #2 - I know but it looks really good from a non Xmas perspective.
Green and red? #3

Question II - Eliminate 2 outer borders?
Should I eliminate the last cream and colored border and just bind in color at the squares on point?

Open to other suggestions too.

Thanks for looking.

I like number 1. They are all lovely, but I like red (smile). Thanks for sharing this beauty.

I really like #2. I think the black sets it off so nicely. #1 is 2nd choice. #3 I don't care for.

I guess it depends on where it is to be placed.

I am NOT a green person. I DO love red. So, guess which one I like the most? #1 because of the continuity of the red balanced with the beautiful pieced on point squares and the overall pattern of the quilt.
