    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!
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

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

    I love the quilt and the orange color is what I like so why not add a purple as the outer borderand then bind it in a bright orange. Beautiful job .

    What a beautiful quilt! What a lucky Mom you have! I agree with purple for a wider border. I can't wait to see this when it's all done!

    I love that! I would never have thought of that color combination, but it looks fabulous.
    People who start projects and never finish them are cooler
    than people who never start projects at all.
