    This is called "In The Pink" from the sept 2006 issue of the quilter magazine. The original quilt obviously uses pink as the main fabric.....I used a small yellow and white pin dot.This quilt was very easy..I started it yesterday finished a few minutes ago....I am wondering if I should put borders on..the pattern doesn't call for them...but I rarely make a quilt without borders.

    What a sweet quilt. Very nice.
    I like adding borders to my quilts too.

    Gorgeous. Are you secretly a quadruplet? You whip out these fantastic quilts so fast?

    Look forward to seeing them. I am a beginner, and dream of accomplishing just one of your quilts!

    Although I am a beginner and know nothing! I would add a light green border as it is in most of your colored blocks.
    :) :) :)

    It's pretty! I'm with you about the borders - almost always add 2 myself. I usually put a narrow inner border and wider outer border. It frames the center so well. It can make a quilt I don't really like into one I love! Lay the fabric out on one side and stare at it for awhile...that should help you decide.

    You are quite the quilting machine! :)

    Another gorgeous quilt. I don't know how you do it.
    This colors in this one are so soft looking.
    I just love it.

    Beautiful quilt! I would have never thought of 9 patches and 4 patches. Makes it look so complicated, but stunning!

    Another winner!! How do you do it? I agree about borders...anytime I see a quilt without them I wonder why they didn't "finish" the quilt!!! ha ha

    I am sure whatever border you decide on will be perfect for your quilt...... :thumbup:

    It is beautiful and I vote, don't put a border one it. I usually do to, but finally made one and didn't put a border and I actually like it! You might suprise yourself.

    Absolutely Beautiful !!! I would put a darker small border to frame it and then a wider one. You will do a great job at deciding what colors to use. I really think borders finish a quilt off very nicely.

    I didn't plan any of my colors....but I think if someone did you could really make the "chains" stand out and get a completely different feel...I just had a pile of fat quarters laying around that needed to be used....

    What a pretty and cheerful quilt. I love the small scale florals with the pin-dots. Great job!

    All of the four patches and nine patches are made from 2.5 inch strips or squares.
