    Interwoven Diamonds Scrappy Christmas Quilt Top

    I'm working on this scrappy interwoven diamonds Christmas quilt top. Need ideals for borders as it's only 36 by 48 right now and ran out of the wow snowflake fabric I used in the background, I tried to use a different print for all the diamonds. I was thinking a solid border than maybe a scrappy piano type border? I used a lot of my favorite fabrics.

    Look at those points! Perfect!
    What a great quilt.
    I think a solid for the borders or something that reads as a solid is a good idea. Also, that will give you a space to do some FMQ if you enjoy that.

    It's like a christmas I spy! How fun buddy's mom. I personally think a solid white border would be perfect.

    Beautiful job, love this quilt.
    IMHO ... I'd go "quiet" with a border, wouldn't want to detract from the quilt.
    When life gives you scraps, make a colorful happy quilt.

    that's so cute and you did a great job. I think I'd use another white and do a border, and then put that scrappy piano keys border. loved how you used your fabric.

    Looks like a fun project...I love the fussy cutting you did for many of the prints. Iím sure the white snowflake border will complete it nicely.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.
