    So far this is where I'm at with my blooming star quilt. The blocks are not sewn together yet. Each block has 33 pieces sewn together to make one block, but chain piecing made it come together alot faster. I probably will not get this finished for a while yet.
    Which border do you think looks best? Thank's for looking. Your opinion means alot to me.

    All 12 blocks

    How about a narrow border in the rust and then a wider border of the blue?

    I'm kind of thinking of the double myself, I too like the blue with the rust color. Thank soooooo much for your opinions. I spent way too much time trying to decide and I'm so happy for this board to help me out!!!!

    A beautiful quilt in the making, my preference on borders would be a framing one of the rust and then the green n rust as the wider border, just my opinion.
