    Baby Honu top done - scalloped borders?

    I finished the Babu Honu top for my new granddaughter due in August. I love how it came out. I put a lot of pinks in it but still wonder if it needs something to make it more girly. I did consider prairie points, but don't want them to distract too much from the center. I am contemplating making the outer border a scalloped border. I need to decide before I quilt the border because it might change my decision on what to quilt.

    What do you think? Scallops or bind it as is?

    Thanks for looking!

    Bind it. Looks perfect to me. If you feel the need for more pink you can use that dark pink from your turtles for the binding ?

    That's something I am considering also. I have similar batiks, but not enough of any one that I used on the shells or inner border. I'm sure something I have would blend ok.

    I am back. I changed my computer services and I couldn't seem to get the board going again.
    Your quilt is really pretty. I like it.

    i think scallops would be wonderful on this quilt, and would not detract from the center at all.

    I agree, I think the scallops would echo the waves of the sea.

    I second that motion. I think it looks plenty girlie (not too girlie, but girlie enough for a girl -- if that makes sense). I think the pink would make a great binding -- it would move your eye out there & really give it an added zing. I can't wait to see this when it's all done!

    Scallops would echo the shape of the turtles shells. But if you bound it, it would be equally lovely. Great quilt!

    scallops except for at the top that would be near her head. But then that might make too directional. I think the colors are great. Definitely bind in pink. I know a lot of girls who actually don't like pink. I also know a lot of new moms who love their girls but don't love the gifts because everything is pink. So don't worry about not enough pink the baby will have plenty.
