    Instead of just doing plain borders on this BOM, I decided to do a pieced border. I think it will make the quilt more interesting. Tell me what you think. There will probably be another plain ending border too This is UFO Day for me with a small group so I am working on this border. What would you put also for the last border?

    WOW, the pieced border looks excellent! For borders, I always like a dark border on the very outside edge. Maybe some of the yellow or red as a thin border, then a darker outside border like the brown or red.

    It's a gorgeous quilt!!! :D

    I like it the way you have it laid out, and then another border of the same brown you used in the inner border.
    I really like this quilt:D:D:D

    Your quilt is beautiful. I vote for dark brown as the final border. Love your pieced border.

    Wow! I love your pieced border. I'm afraid to make a suggestion. So far your own instincts have been right on.

    Please share the final results with us.

    I agree with the dark outside...maybe the golden yellow, then red, then a dark brown binding?

    That is a superlative BOM quilt. The blocks go well together. Like your color choices.
