    Help with choosing border

    This is the 5 minute block and unsure if the star fabric will work as a border. The other seems bland to me. What do you great quilters think would look best

    Oh, yes, the darker one - like a frame on an art piece. Lovely quilt. I made the 5 minute block and used a different layout, but I like yours even better. Nice work.

    Nicely done! I'd do a small border of a green, followed by a wider border of the purple. JMHO.
    Love your color choices!

    The darker green will bring emphasis to the quilt itself.

    Sorry all, I like the lighter one that matches the one used in the block.
