    I wanted to post this to hear some feed back. I am making this for my son's first born. It will be my first Grandbaby. This is only the top of the quilt, I have not finished it all yet. I'm still going to put a border around the outside edge. Any ideas?

    Ohhh, that looks so snuggly!! Really darling. Looks to me like you have a large choice of colors for the borders. Any of those colors would look great :D
    Almost forgot- CONGRATULATIONS on your first grand!!!

    Very cute! I say if it's a boy make the border blue. If it's a girl make the border pink! Just my opinion. Nice job.

    Very cute. I think I would go with yellow. There seems to be quite a bit of it in the embroidery.

    Hi and welcome to the Board! That is a beautiful baby quilt. I'm with the others, use one of the yellows for the border.

    I would go nutreal if giving it before the baby is born. Go green. a nice and lovely shade. will work for both boys and girls. plus it will make it more colorful. And the baby can use it to learn their colors.

    Wow, that is pretty! I think you could use almost anything for a border. Congrats on the new grand baby!

    Looks like this is for a girl. How about a pink fabric with some of the other colors in tiny flowers for the border? As you can tell, everyone has all sorts of ideas. Anything you do will be beautiful. And congrats on this grandchild. They are truly wonderful.
