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.

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

Very pretty quilt.

Yes I agree with this. It's beautiful- now I'm thinking I'm gonna have to do one.
