    No real suggestions, maybe a solid black border to close it off. But I love what you have done, very pretty !

    Wow...thats really pretty! If it were mine, I'd use a fairly wide black border...I'd love it if I could find a black with a print that picks up a lot of the batik colors. Whatever you choose will just make it prettier I think!

    Really pretty! I agree with a black border, but I might try a narrow framing border to tie in with whats already there. Then a multicolor to tie it together maybe?

    Nice job dojo! :D
    Do you have any of the multicolor batick left? If you do, you could make another border with it, then bind it in black.

    AWESOME!!! That small border did the trick! Great job!
    Can't help you with the rest of it, but I agree if you could find some black with the colors that you have, that would be nice

    i've got some of each left but not enough of any to do the binding, hate to go buy more cause it's $10.98 a yard but hey a big thank you to all of you for all the nice compliments and the help with the borders. i think i'll put some of that light fabric for another small border if i have enough of that, i think i do. may have to sew all the scraps together and have a multi colored binding, i'll just have to see how it all comes out and what i have left over.

    yes shemjo i certainly have gotten wonderful suggestions, i'm not very good at picking colors seems like. i went to dinner with the two ladies that own the LQS this evening and yes she said that pattern is the stained glass window, i saw one like it in their shop, that's where i got the idea, i just didn't know what it was called at the time. back to the machine now to put the last border on it and i'll post another pic when i do, i'm so excited, can't wait, lol, crazy old woman huh

    That is just soooo pretty. I was going to suggest the narrow dark border-I am glad to see that you did it. I cannot wait to see it with the border on.
