    Thank you everyone for your feedback. Borders win! Guess I better get at it. Think I will do a thin green border and then the pink print. I think I knew it needed a border but was just being lazy and in a hurry to get working on another one that is taking shape in my head. Guess it will have to stay there a little longer. Off to cut borders now.....

    Do not decide until you spread it across your BED. Only when you see itas it will be used, can you make that decision.
    My fabric talks to me.

    I like the idea of a thin border but how about something in that dark pink color, then the wider border, finishing with a green binding.

    I like the idea doing the green border first since you havethe flower fabric in the quilt and then I would do the second border using the flower fabric...very pretty top!

    That would be my suggestions, too, but then again... that's how I "end" most of my quilts. I love this quilt top... the fabrics are yummy! I love, love, love shabby chic & this just defines that look! I can't wait to see this beauty all done!

    P. S: What pattern is this beautiful quilt made from? I love it!

    this one gets preittier every time I look at it. So soft and feminine. No border. just bind it.
    A finished quilt excites me!! Whether is it mine or yours!

    I think adding borders to a quilt just makes for a perfect ending. I always border my quilts.

    I also think it needs the green or maybe a medium to dark pink then the rose print.

    I agree here - add 2 borders; the thin green one - and then therose patterned shown. It will be a wonderful quilt when finished; it is already as far as you've gotten!

    The pattern is Cottage Romance from the book Better Homes and Gardens Scrappy Quilts. Lots (29 projects) of really nice scrappy patterns in the book.

    I vote for a thin green border then the roses, and green binding, (I use the darkest fabric in a quilt for the binding to keep your eye in on the quilt, it acts as a frame)

    I agree that a solid thinner boarder and then the flower boarder, then a binding would really set your quilt off.

    I like it with the border. Just frames it all in.
