    I am with the narrow blue and wide red. But then I am partial to red. Great job.

    Nice job! Have you thought about a narrow blue border with a larger tan outer border? I'm assuming that is a tan/brown in the edge of the blocks.

    It turned out fabulously! I'd choose dark blue.

    Wow, great top! Perhaps a red border would blend with the red HSTs and meld the pattern and border.

    Whatever your dark color in the blocks is- that's what the border should be. It could be a little one to make it pop or a larger one- you would have to audition to see, but definitely the dark color.

    something dark and solid maybe to give your eyes a rest? or a cream color for a less bold look might be better. either way it is fantastic!

    It came oh great! I would think a dark red or black border.

    I'd do a fairly narrow border of the gold (?) fabric just to finish it. It wouldn't take away from the wonderful quilt top, but just complete it. Lovely!

    That is such a beautiful quilt. I love the way it looks right now. Not sure if I would add any borders. Great job!

    I really like your colour choices. I vote for blue, but not too wide, then possibly bind it in one of the reds from the quilt. I'm jealous you are finished. I'm still working on steps 3 and 4.

    The quilt is beautiful. It has such movement. I would do a narrow blue and a wider red border.

    Love it! I did mine in Bonnie's colors. I got the top all put together last night. I'm opting no borders on mine. I'm backing it in the lime green and binding it in one of the purples. Love your colors!!

    Gorgeous ! great job !
    I love Bonnie's patterns, how can one person be so creative ?? I made Smoky Mountain Stars a few yrs ago ... and plan to make her Pineapple Blossom pattern (I think that's the name)
    I'd go with the dark blue for a border, or blue and then red ...
