I copied this lap quilt.
http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-130925-1.htm

I am not fond of the reddish brown border. Which would you use? Blue, orange or green or just leave the black. I will bind with the black. It measures with out any more borders about 53" X 61"

Or maybe that border that incorperates a small flange. green flange. black binding???

Many thanks to all for your help on this.

The blue gives it a calming look, and the red makes it pop. And I love the blue/green, which would be my personal choice.

Green, then orange. The blue doesn't seem to bring anything to the party.
