    I like the idea of a little more spark of the red, too! The Seminole border is very pretty, one of my favoirite techniques.

    That is so nice. I am doing a border challenge with a group od local ladies and I hope you don't mind if I copy it!! I agree with making your last border a dark one.

    It's a gorgeous quilt!!! :D
    I agree and yes that quilt is beautiful.

    I think I would go with another border the same as the inside border and use the yellow to bind with, but that's just me.
    You did a fantastic job! and that pieced border is gorgeous! Love the quilt:)

    If just hearing the colors described, I would never have thought they could have made up into something so absolutely beautiful! The border is fabulous and sets it off so perfectly.

    I really really like the border, it really looks nice with this quilt, which is beautiful BTW.

    I would use a burgandy (?) border, like the one you have in your quilt.

    Your pieced border is to die for. I would surround it with either that burgendy fabric or a dark brown fabric so the inner border really pops. That is one beautiful quilt :thumbup:

    Very nice; the additions to the border outline gives the quilt top a richness that accents the inner blocks.

    I like the pieced border you have, but think it would need to have a solid border to finish it off. BTW, it is a beautiful quilt. I love it.

    try getting that gold into the borders. do dark brown (like
    you already have) strip of equal or 1/4" smaller of the gold,
    the pieced border.--then another strip of the gold, then another dark brown. bind in dark brown or gold. a beautiful
    quilt top !
