    I love your quilt. The colors are nice and bright. Good job. White or blue border would look nice.

    Wasn't it fun to make?

    I really like this quilt - it makes me smile. Whatever you choose will be great, but my opinion is border in yellow (the color of the flower centers) followed by either the purple or green. Fantastic quilt - did I mention I really like it!

    I like to end up with a darker color for the final border and binding to "frame" the quilt.

    Love the bright colors, they are so happy. I think a small white border with rectangles of all the colors for the outer border, and white binding.

    Very nice! How about the yellow center color, then white, then the green stem color?

    I would use the white as the border and navy blue as the binding. Very cute.

    That's such a pretty quilt! I don't have advice on borders. Would have to see them.
    I love it :D

    Yes, I like the idea of a muticolored border after a solid maybe the yellow or white and then a solid binding color.

    A thin border in yellow white, followed by blue or purple would be nice. Or try a piano key border~

    What a lovely design! I would add a border the same color as the center of the flower and then follow it with a border of blue.

    I see a small inner border of yellow because there is no yellow touching outside edges of blocks. And then, one of the darker colors - like green - for outer border. I like green as it goes with all flowers.

    Thats exactly what I was thinking with the narrow yellow border first, will make it pop and then frame with green for the outer border and the binding. Would be a nice finish to a gorgeous and happy-looking quilt!

    Maybe something like this, using the colors in the center of the quilt?
