    Justme, I would do the border in paisley fabric. The pattern is gorgeous. I like the colors you have chosen. Eiltocq.

    Justme,
    Who is the manufacturer of the paisley material? I would love to purchase some. Thanks for any information you can give me. Eiltocq.

    I vote paisley...with a paisley ruffle, will keep your eye right where you want it...on the main part of the quilt top...and not distract with patterns on the sides.

    I think we probably made your decision worse with so many points of view! :)

    obxqwlter---your suggestion of a paisley border not distracting from the beautiful top is a great one. How good to have so many suggestions to choose from---or perhaps not. :roll:

    I guess I'm different. I would pick up aqua color and maybe some of the golden in the paisley.

    Personally I like the second option. Love your colors and patterns.

    Since the border that's on it now echos the design between the blocks adding another cream border to it will mess up that design. I would add the paisley.

    That's very pretty, and I like the little "checkered" parts. I think they would be nice in the border as well (somehow).

    Hi Everyone,,
    Thanks you all for your great ideas...I purchased the fabric at Joannes and have not been able to find more of it. The paisley fabric is made by Fabric Traditions. copyright 2009. I believe the name of it was Morrocan Paisley.
    This quilt was suppose to be for my sister...the real dilemma is that I did not buy the fabric to make a queen size quilt... my hubby loved the colors and pattern - wants it for our bed..
    So far I took off the cream and brown border.. trying to piece enough to make two more rows, then a few floating stars set with the cream . add the cream and brown border on the bottom. then have the pasiley bed ruffle.
    Keeping my fingers crossed that this will work!

    I agree, the paisley fabric would make an awesome outter border and not show dirt as much as the cream. What's the name of this pattern? I really like it. You've done a fabulous job...
    I do so agree with the above.
