Made this pinwheel quilt top (OMG what a chore LOL) and now I need to pick borders. The block in the sashing is black with pin dots, and I have a black with polka dots for the #2 border, but can't go straight to that - thinking a solid black. Opinions?

    given the black cornerstones, i'd probably use black for the first border, too.

    that's a pretty, cheerful top.

    This type of quilt really would look good with a striped border with the colors of pinwheels used in the stripe... am sure there are several available that would pick up most of the colors. Unlike the writer who posted, I think going to a straight black and then to a black & white dot for the outside would be much too much black... another option would be if you have any scrap or pieces left from the pinwheel fabrics to make your own pieced stripe using either squares or rectangles (1-2" in width)

    A darker color is best to frame it, like green! Then your next border can be scrappy with finally a black border, IMHO.
