    Oh my Pink!!!

    Needing a couple of girl quilts, so decided to make a scrappy of one of them. Used my scraps and the diamonds are forever pattern. Think it needs a solid border or two to slow it down some. What do you guys think?

    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Diet Dr. Pepper in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO, what a ride!!"

    Love the pinks! A darker pink border would look great-IMHO~

    A dark fuchsia border might be nice.

    I am really into string quilts lately and I just love this one. I always like to put a solid border around them.....like you said....just to slow it down a bit!

    You made me laugh when you talked about slowing it down a bit....
    Beautiful quilt!
    If you did several colors for the border maybe that turquoise I see in the prints along with pink would be good. Just thinkin' out loud here.

    A nice dark pink 2 inch border and then a larger medium pink border. You can't have too much pink!

    My motto, too! Viva la pink! I think these border suggestions are good ones. I love this little scrappy! I can't wait to see it all done!!!
