    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.

    A flange of the orange then a border of the blue with a black binding. Quilt with the variegated thread. IMHO

    I would do stips of beige then the green then finish off with the beige. The beige is neutral and will set off the design better. The orange is a strong color and should be left where it is.

    I am going to be the odd ball and tell you that I like the blue. It has the teal swirls in it and I think it looks really nice. The teal as the border washed out all the center squares. IF you want to do a flange though, the teal since it matches with the blue and then the black binding... or a black flange with the teal binding.

    Let us see what you decide though in the end.

    I also like the blue.

    the red makes the whole quilt pop and seem a little loud.

    the green, sort of washes it out, plus you have a lot of green in there.

    the blue seems to me to pull it all together...

    I think it needs at least a thin red -then go from there.

    I think the green makes it look like a southwestern style, if you like that look then use that one. I would use orange flange and blue.
