    i LOVE THAT ALL THE PLATES ARE DIFFERENT! Oops, didn't mean to shout. Not fan of either color but together they are great!

    I love the color combo you have there! I don't think I would ever have put purple and orange together, but it looks stunning!

    Very pretty, wish it showed the true colors. Orange seems to be pretty popular now.
    Live and let live!

    Depending on how much bigger you want to make it, how about a partial fan border?

    Wow....you are doing a wonderful job!! If it were mine, I would audition a thin border of your light color followed by a wide border with the dk purple floral. Have fun!!

    Depending on how wide you want it, I would add the lighter yellow first, then the purple. You can vary the width, depending on how big you want the quilt to be, but try to do it in multiples or halves of the orange border you've already used. For example, if the orange border will finish at 3", make the other borders finish at 1-1/2", 3", 6" etc.

    Great Dresdens Plates. I think the last border should be wider for balance of the inner dresdens
    Believe, it can be done!
