    I love your quilt. Those delicate florals are just beautiful. I have read all the posts and agree that a very narrow green border and then the floral would be outstanding. I am now on the last page and so disappointed not to see the final results. Will be watching for it with bated breath!

    It is such a lovely quilt! Beautiful and gentle on the eyes. Absolutely, go for a border and I like the look of the sweet flowered border that you have pinned to the left top of the quilt! Sweet!
    Patchwork Crazy!!!

    Yes to a border. I sgree that a narrow green border and the wide rose border would be beautiful

    If you haven't started the borders yet, try a green flange sewn in when you add the rose fabric border. It's much faster/easier than a separate border. Cut the fabric 1" wide. Fold in half lengthwise. Pin or glue raw edge to the edge of the rose border fabric that will be sewn to the quilt. Now you have only one seam to sew instead of 2. Easy peasy!

    I think a border would finish it.

    I like the border, but I would put a small dark rose color first, then the border. Just my opinion.
    If a woman's work is never done....why start?

    I have been bordering quilts about twenty five years and find the border is always a good finishing touch. The best I have found are a color in the top already and maybe one of the same color but darker as using light green and a darker pick on this quilt. Good luck it's a beautiful top.

    Beautiful quilt. I love your fabrics. Personally, I think a border or borders polish it off.

    Ditto thin green border and then a flowered border or a solid rose border.

    That is really great. I like the idea of borders. Maybe a small green one and a larger outer floral border.

    Thin green and then flowered. The quilt has a lot of motion and the border will help to slow it down.

    This quilt top really is straight but I guess it is not pinned on the wall very well.

    I agree with the 2 borders: small green and the larger rose pattern. This is going to be a lovely quilt.
