    Hey...that's some pretty popular floral fabric you have there! I sent some to someone on here who ran out making a project, and I used some in a mini quilt I made for a swap on this board.

    LOVE that block!! Lovely!! Maybe try a green tone on tone border that matches the green in the floral fabric.

    Oh wow, it is beautiful. I would choose one of the deep rose color and also a one inch border of one of the medium colors of the flowers. You have a lot of blue and gold already so you need to add the third color to make it come together.

    I like the design. I like the suggestion of a blue sashing and the a fabric border.

    That is going to be a beautiful quilt. I love the colors. I think a blue border would look nice but of course blue is my favorite color.

    I like the wine/burgandy for a border. You are doing a grand job on a beautiful pattern with darling fabric.

    Thanks for sharing,
    Blessings, Ruth

    beauiful...I would put a 2" white border first, then either a blue or rose for outlining then the floral order.
