    Looks very pretty. Do you have any of the rose pink color that's in the flowers? Even if you just did a narrow in a pink and maybe came back with a wider in the floral and bind with green. Many times it is what I have enough of that I use for my borders.

    I like a narrow cream colored band, then either the pink or green ...which ever you can match better.

    What a beautiful quilt for your SIL. Maybe you could call it,
    her Flower Garden? :D I would trim it first in a narrow
    green band, with a cream then a rose color. Whatever
    you choose will be pretty. What is the name of your block?
    I love it!!
    :D :D :D :D

    yeah that does sound nice, i'll play and see what I have. I do have the yellow and pink larger print but I'm wondering if its too much and create a busy look?

    Sulabug this actually was a mystery quilt a while back. I took the day off today due to my MS so I decided to get off my butt and do something instead of sulking. Glad you liked it!

    You might want to try a narrow cream or pink border and then try the floral. Anything you decide, I am sure she will be thrilled.

    This quilt is gorgeous! From a newbies perspective I would do green, cream and then rose. I think I would make them gradually wider as I went.

    The designis great,it actually reminds me of wrapped hard candies or something.... lol, ,may sound weird, but it does.

    Very nice job, I am sure the recipient will love it!

    Maybe a small band of the rose or cream and comeback with a darker green.

    great quilt.
    display your quilt with borders in a mirror if you can. Or take pictures and view the different colors. you'll be amazed on how it looks. And then make your choice. I hope this helps.

    I like your choice on the border quilt nut. I am looking forward to seeing it finished up. Nice work for a mystery quilt.

    Very pretty! How about a thin rose border and a wider cream like the flower background color?
