please.

My original plan was to use the blue polka dots as the first border, but the more I look at it, I think the same purple that is in the quilt goes better.

Which do you like?

I LOVE the blue polka dot for the border. It adds a lot of life.

I really love the blue polka dots with that top. They just pop with life and color! Not as big a fan of the border color, though, at least not with such a bright center... it looks somehow dingy next to the top, even though it's a lovely fabric on its own.

Have you considered a narrow border of the pink that is in the quilt and then a wider border of the blue polka dot?

I agree totally! Purple is too dark!

I'm with Jennalyn, if you have a little brighter fabric for the border, I'd try that. With a different border, I think either the blue dot or the purple would be great.

Nice quilt by the way!
