    Wow, everyone has great ideas, but I loved this one :!: Sounds like a lot of work to the newbie, but I want to make an Irish Chain one day and your colors are right up my alley for decorating taste :)

    ok here my thought...close with a narrow boarder of the yellow to close the blocks then put the dust Rose wider. I just finished and Irish Chain this way. But thats just idea. Can't wait to see what you do

    Gorgeous Quilt! I think I would get the darker border.

    If it were mine I would put a narrow burgundy fabric on first, it will frame it beautifully! Then the pieced one
    Quilts and cats just go together!

    I would pick one of the dark colors out of the floral print and make a narrow border around the blocks, then follow that with your regular border.
