    I vote cream, especially since the skirt will be darker.
    Looks great!

    I thought paisley.... pin some of the paisley material down one side and stand back and decide... that dark blue is pretty too... it needs to be dark and definitely not the cream.

    Here is my two cents: think you should remove the corner blocks in your border, replace them with smaller versions of your stars, then add a border of your paisley fabric then you can finish with the cream, and binding with the paisley fabric to tie it all together.

    Since I never use large patches of pale colors I cant believe I am saying go with the cream. You want the top to pop that would definetely keep your eye straight on top. I have little critters and theywould never jump straight up on top of the bed hence the cream would forever be paw print colored.. but if you have no critters (or own ones with a sense of balance) and there are not a gaggle of tiny children with wonderful PBJ fingers then cream could work beautifully and stay cream for a long time coming.

    First off, it's a beautiful quilt. I just love the fabrics that you have used.

    I think I would use the paisley fabric for the drop. I think it would look more neutral than the cream. I know that doesn't sound logical but the paisley, to me anyway, would be more calming and lead the eye to your quilt design.

    Let us know what you choose. It seems everyone has many ideas (which is what is so great about quilting). I just think the cream would jump out at you if you know what I mean.

    I completely agree with QuiltingIdaho. I think the cream will draw the eye away from the top. I like the idea ofthe brown with a cream binding. You did a beautiful job.

    Maybe a small border (1 inch) of the pale blue, then the cream with the floating stars.

    Your quilt is beautiful. Love the colors and the Paisley bed ruffle will be awesome. Beautiful. :-D :-D :-D

    I'd go for the paisley. More cream would look like an afterthought IMHO.

    I agree with sewjoyce. Cream border would be beautiful with dark bedskirt below it.

    I am drawn to stars and your colors are so striking. Paisley bed ruffle will be perfect with the floating stars on the cream. Go for it. Can't wait to see it finished.

    I was just wondering what the name of the paisley fabric is - if you know - or even the line? It is so pretty. Now my hubby wants your quilt ;) I think you have gotten a lot of great ideas. I think all of them would work. In the end, you have to decide what will make you happy. I have a quilt planned and I will have some cream border on the outside because I like the way it looks but it isn't for everyone. - Your quilt is beautiful! Would love to see picts when you are done.
