    I finished this over the weekend and have yet to put on a border. The idea came from another post on here that was done beautifully in blues and oranges by Barnbum and she was my inspiration. I'm not a fan of blue, per se, but I was happy with how this turned out. What would you suggest for a border? Dark blue solid or a floral print? Or, maybe a dark blue thin border then floral on the outside and bound with dark blue? I'm keeping it a fairly large wall hanging.

    what a beautiful quilt. I am a fan of blue but maybe a dk blue border however pretty might overwhelm.

    Pretty! I'd do a thin dk. blue border, then a larger floral one.

    The blue you used for the center as a thin border, then floral.

    Very pretty quilt.

    Pretty! I'd do a thin border similar to your center square color, then a wider floral. Test a few fabrics and see what looks good to you!

    What a lovely quilt. I was just thinking of doing a log cabin piece and now that I have seen yours, I think that I have finally found a use for some pretty florals that I have been hoarding. Thank you for posting. :lol:

    I'd like to see a floral border after the light separates it from the center.
