    wow.. I have a LOT of great ideas now.. I am going to play with it and I will see what happens.. If you think of something else PLEASE share...Thank you all sooo much!!

    Quilt - what would you put in the corners if you do your idea on the sides?? I think that makes the block look finished... I love the idea.

    I did that to mostly turn your square into a rectangle so you could then put strip borders on it. The additions would just go on the top and bottom, so there aren't corners, per se.

    I'm so useless when these questions arise. I like what you've done so far.

    I think a dark orange flange between a narrow yellow border and a black outer border would really make it pop!!

    I'd suggest a white small border followed by a wider yellow. The white pops the colors while the yellow bookends it since your middle star is yellow.

    No matter how you do it, it's really pretty!

    This is a gorgeous quilt already!

    I really like Quiltilicious' idea to continue the squares on either end to get the length.

    Then I would suggest a narrow gold/yellow border to match the center and a wider border of either the pink or the purple, depending on which you want to emphasize most.

    I don't know if I can explain this, but I'll try. I would duplicate the lower middle and top middle on-point "block, then use the pink polk a dot fabric on either side ending with a purple and yellow four patch or half square triangle under the pink end blocks. If the center portion needed to be wider, just add a contrasting color to the bottom to make it the width you need.

    I love the look of the black. It would make a wonderful border.

    You certainly do have a lot of options. I'd have to audition border fabrics; without that, I wouldn't even attempt a suggestion. It's a lovely quilt with lovely colors and so many border choices.

    What if you added an 2 inch white print on print border then add prairie points in all of the colored quilt fabrics. Add a second 4-5 inch white border and bind with either your favorite color out of the quilt or make a pieced stripped border out of all the colors!

    I am brand new at this forum, but I am sticking my 2 cents in. That is a beautiful piece and the black looks great, so why not frame it with a small amount of black then go to your border. Think the black would be to stark?

    I tend to do straight borders (not courageous enough to do pieced borders yet) - I think I would go with white, yellow and purple.

    I'd go with the lavender/purple border.

    Take your fabrics and put one one of each on side of quilt. Stand BACK and see which one POPS the quilt. I too and am leaning towards the purple.

    Great Quilt!!

    If you have more of the lavender I would use it for a border, as none of it is really touching the outside.
