    QuiltnNan's suggestion gets my vote or even reversing her yellow and purple

    I love the purple sashing and borders. I might do a thin framing border in the yellow and then all purple...of course purple is my favorite color and I love it when it is a deep, rich looking purple.

    Definitely the purple border next to the blocks, yellow next if you desire or yellow as binding

    Just to add to your confusion...since the blocks are flowers, why not some sort of green for the sashing...in real life flowers would probably have green around them. Maybe you could find something predominantly green with either or both some tiny bits of yellow and purple....

    I would look for some sort of pattern with both colors for at least one of the borders. It will add more visual interest.

    My vote is for QuiltnNan too. It gives more of a WOW look.

    This makes for an interesting idea. Are all of the blocks the flower? I would put some more color in either the slashing or final border JMHO

    Without a doubt the purple or even a darker purple would be beautiful.

    This is what I have so far. I was going to follow QuiltnNan's pattern but I ran out of purple. So I'll just use the yellow as binding

    Oh, the purple! But with a very thin yellow border--less than half inch--first, perhaps. These are gorgeous!

    I like the purple better. Even though there is a light color in the quilt, the purple seems to enhance the light color better. Let us know how your final project turns out.
