Default Mom likes ORANGE so...

I started this for her for mothersday but I had to put it off for abit. started working on it again I'm gonna add some boarders to the sides to make it wider Any ideas would be greatly concidered.I will post more when done. Also the colors are much different than what picture shows.

I am not a 'orange' person . . . but that is pretty!

If it was me I would lean towards the 'purple' for a boarder, making the oranges pop more. IMHO

I'd add a 4" border of the purple print, then bind it with the orange. I really like how this turned out and that each of the Dresden's has an independent look. Nice!

The purple is what I will use.

If it were mine, I would put a narrow strip of the yellow between the two darker borders.
