    I was so into this wall hanging. I had it all cut out and wasn't happy with the first batch of centers so I started over. Then I came down with a bad, bad case of bursitis in my shoulder. I finally got it all pieced together. I was so careful doing my measuring and cutting; I just don't think it was meant to be. Not happy at all how some of the blocks (didn't) measure up but need some suggestions as to what color I should border it in. Thanks for your suggestions.

    I agree orang, but maybe a small border first, of black, or perhaps that lovely print.

    I would go with a narrow orange border and a wider brown one. That is really pretty.

    Still not getting the police statements. The police are helpers. Well, when criminals are involved ;-) I think it looks fine. I would somehow incorporate, if possible, the background you chose. Hard for me to say because I am not sure what you are seeing as an end game as far as size and usefulness.

    I think the orange and agree a small frame border first, either the print or black would really enhance the overall quilt. I like it! Quite eye catching, nicely done.

    I think the orange for the border, if you need it bigger then the brown. Love it.

    i think you should be MUCH happier with your quilt than you are. it's a stunner!

    1. in that design, there is no need for everything to align perfectly.
    2. it would take me all day with a magnifying glass to find the mistakes you see. i would much rather spend that time gazing upon your beauty with the admiration it deserves.

    i would use either orange, black, or a very dark brown for the binding.

    I think you quilt is lovely. I would put a narrow border of one of the dark colors and then bind it with that golden yellow color from the center

    I vote for a narrow orange border, followed by a larger brown border.
