    I've attached this pic in the introducing section, but figure I will post it here as well to get some help. I thought it would be really hard, but it was really easy to do. Not sure what colors I will use for the borders yet. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    Great job. It amazes me how they look curved. One day I'll try one of these quilts.

    Beautiful! I like that lighter grey, right beside the white as an accent color for borders and such

    You did a fine job on that quilt! I would have to live with it a while to decide on borders!
    Great work! :thumbup: :thumbup: :D

    Pick the color within the hearts that you want to make pop out at you and follow through to the border.

    Audition your colors. Between each selection leave the room and return about hours later and your first impression when you see the colors you chose will give you an idea as to what to go with.

    It is really personnaly preference. If you like it that is what is important.

    Its beautiful. Bargello is my favorite pattern. I would use the gray, black or white for borders.

    If I were doing it, I think I would use the fabrics from the center of the heart.

    Awesome--love the colors. A friend and I were talking about that pattern today--we are thinking of tackling it together after the New Year.

    Awesome quilt! I would make 3 borders 1st border camel. Then 2nd red. Then 3rd black. Bind in a darker purple. Looking forward to seeing your decision. A lot of nice idea combinations to chose from.

    It is Gorgeous! I would just pick out your favorite color in it and use that for the border.
