    It's wonderful! Is there something in the room that you could match with a border color? Or how about a pieced border?

    I don't think it needs a border! It looks great the way it is! Maybe red or green binding would like nice!

    I love the idea of red for the border. That is a darling quilt. I love the beetle and the flowers.
