    Excuse the piecing, after I started cutting the strips I learned about starch. Some are "off", some are ok.

    Anyway, I need thoughts on the outside border choice, either the greenish or the purplish.

    I'm a huge purple fan but, I really like the green as the boarder!

    I would piece the border, use strips of each.

    I like the green too. The dark of the print enhances the quilt better than I think the purple does.

    They both would work fine...I like the contrast of the small purple next to that green one.

    I don't see anything wrong with your strips. The quilt top is just wonderful

    awww.thank you!! I'm reading along..purple, green, green, green and you like my strips =)

    I like the greenish too but wondered if it was to much with the triangle/border. To me the purplish isn't enough contrast with the darker redish border.

    Thanks everyone!! You've confirmed what I was thinking. This means I need to go to the LQS again =), the green was supposed to be the back. *sigh*, guess I'll just have to buy something else......*giggles*

    I'm inclined to go with the purple - it looks livelier (sp?).

    The green is nice but seeing as the background is this colour, to me having the border green I think is a little to much.

    I like the green. I think it makes the small purple/pink inner border stand out. I love the quilt...it's beautiful
