    Easter Table Runner

    What are your thoughts about the Easter egg fabric added as borders? Please be truthful. This is a table runner for my work counter. Co-workers are asking me to hurry up and decorate for Easter before its over.

    I think the bunny fabric would look great as a border. Blue is ok but it's almost too many colors.
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    The easter egg fabric is nice and fun and looks good to me, but if you want it not too be too bright then the blue will suit. What do your colleagues think? Fun or calm?

    how wide is your border going to be? If it is really wide like the picture, I think I would prefer the blue, but if it is not so wide the easter egg fabric is such fun! Just a bit overwhelming in the picture.

    I like the easter egg fabric, it has the lavendar and pink in it too. Just my opinion, but a much better match than the blue.

    Don't care for the blue, doesn't coordinate with the other colors, I'd go with the Easter egg fabric, but not too wide a border, no more than 2 inches so it doesn't overwhelm the rest of the colors. In my opinion, any fabric with very bright yellows goes a long way, so keep it to a minimum, gonna be really cute!

    Easter egg is my favorite. The blue was blah...

    I would use the Easter Egg fabric for other table toppers or runners. Purple would look better with the squares. Just my opinion.

    The Easter egg fabric, I agree with the other person that say to much solids going on when you add blue. The eggs are cute and your border isn't going to be that big.

    Usually work environments can use some pizzaz. I would go with the Easter egg fabric.

    The color saturation of the egg fabric is too bright for the center and therefore detract from it. The blue is a better choice based on this, but, would you consider a pieced border?

    Why not a small blue border, then the bunny fabric as a last border.

    I think the bunny fabric would be the best for the border. Use the eggs as the backing.

    I like this idea. The egg fabric is cute, but IMHO it detracts from the center.

    I suggest using more of the bunny fabric if you have it. The egg fabric is a bit too busy- at least in the picture- and the solids are a bit bland.

    I think a lavender would be better. The green in the easter egg seems like it is just too much - I don't care for the blue either (I like both fabrics - just not on this project). Just my 2 cents.

    Maybe you should put a skinny border in blue, then a larger border using the egg print. Keeps it fun!
