    I like this pattern. I also like the color combination you used. The quilt glows. Great job.

    Beautiful quilt. I think a skinny inner border in red (is it red? sometimes with cameras it's hard to tell) wide outer border in green.

    I think your darkest dark for a narrow (your width preference) inner border and your lightest light for the wider (again your width preference) outer border.
    Although the outer border could be the color that you would prefer to go on that particular bed. Only my 2 cents.

    that is so pretty, i would do a one of the white colors so that it makes your other colors stand out and you will be able to see the pattern better, that is a wonderful quilt, great job :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

    Oh! I like this a lot! Did you see the scalloped border tutorial Eddie posted in the tutorials section? That would just compliment this quilt greatly.

    I would put two borders. A smaller one on the inside, and a larger one for the outer. Maybe a medium and a dark.

    This is gorgeous. Did you use batiks? I would do a narrow plain border in a darker color and pieced border using additional DP blocks to form a continuos path around the outside.
