I agree with QuiltnNan.....I usually use a darker outer border as for me, it frames the quilt better.

What a pretty block, love the purple with yellow. I also like quiltnNan's idea, narrow purple, narrow yellow, then larger purple borders with purple binding. It will be gorgeous, either way.

I like the idea of using both. It would really make it pop

Yellow makes it more spring-like to me.

I think it would be outstanding with a stripe blue and yellow.

I like the idea of using both the yellow and the purple too for borders. Love the design.
