    It looks pretty. I get in sewing and knitting slumps too. I just wait until the slump passes and then I am back on a roll and can't be stopped...until the next slump. lol

    I agree with a dark border. I can't tell if you have black or navy in the quilt but which ever one of those it is that's what I'd do for the border too.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    I agree, I would go with a black border. Your quilt is lovely and the colors are great.

    Beautiful. To me it doesn't need a boarder. Bind it with black.
    :-( I wish I was a full time quilter!

    If you need a border, I'd say a green since it appears to be the predominate color. Audition it and the suggested black..happy quilting!!!
    Retired teacher, loving it.
    Love quilting also.

    I really like that. I wouldn't have thought of color-coordinating the HSTs and going that route. It turned out great!
    People who start projects and never finish them are cooler
    than people who never start projects at all.

    Really cute and I would choose a border fabric depending on the purpose. If it is going to be a child's quilt I would use one of the cute novelty prints for the border. If it is going to be a couch quilt for myself then a black border would highlight the colours. Glad you are over your slump in such a great way!

    I have two ideas: Maybe two borders-the first a narrow solid color, then a wider one in your favorite print
    Second, a solid border, maybe black, then a scrappy binding from the fabrics in the quilt. It is lovely!

    A darker border would be nice.

    Love your layout. Glad your over your "slump" but really think you were recharging your creative juices. Borders are so important, or the lack of them. I agree with Tartan, depends on how it is going to be used. I usually like darker solid borders because they make the "interior" of the quilt pop. In this case maybe a lighter solid border or borders because the quilt is so sunshiney.

    A narrow black border with a wider border of one of the colors in the quilt top that suits you such as purple, green or pink.

    Your quilt top is beautiful and glad to see you are out of your slump!

    Your quilt is so amazeing. Is there a special technique you used for sew, your 1/2 square triangles. Your seams are so amazeing. A VERY GOOD JOB. Don-isewman

    I just love the way you have coordinated the colors in each block, and your points match so perfectly. I agree that a black border will really make the colors pop. I am anxious to see it finished.
