    This is what I've been working on and now I need to add one more border but don't know if I should make it all one material or if I should break it up like the first border. What do you think.

    Awesome quilt. Either border would be fine IMHO.

    Beautiful quilt...I love the curling ribbon effect. For a second border, I think I would prefer one solid color to "frame" the entire quilt.

    If you are referring to the inner stripped border, I like that. I think it needs something more or less solid to frame it.

    Beautiful quilt. Ithink a solid outer border would work just fine. Gorgeous colors.

    Mary you always do such beautiful work and this one is no exception. IMHO I think a solid border would frame it all nicely.

    Lovely quilt. I'd also prefer a solid border to frame the design.

    Beautiful job! Have always loved that pattern. A solid final border would be a nice touch! :-D :-D :-D

    Very beautiful, warm quilt top. I agree a solid boarder will frame it perfectly

    I think I love it! I'd probably go with a final single fabric border.

    Are you sure it needs one more border? It looks pretty big right now and it actually looks "done" to me. It is a beautiful quilt BTW.

    Absolutely gogeous. I tend to agree with a wider more solid border to frame it. Thanks for sharing. Make sure to give us a look at the finished beauty
