    My niece is having a baby boy in a couple of weeks and she is decorating the nursery in cowboy decor so I thought this would be a cute fabric. I love the way it turned out but not sure about the borders. I had orginally thought of using a brown rope for the inner border but not liking it now that the quilt is together. I have the star fabric for the outer border and have his name to go on it and Cowboy Up.. Anyone have any ideas??? Have to be done tomorrow so I can quilt it.

    I love the quilt - I would try the red for a small border.

    oh that is sooooo cute!! He is going to be one lucky little cowpoke :wink: I think the red or the blue from the blue background in the cowboy print either one would look great. Can't wait to see it quilted. Thanks for sharing.

    I just love those retro cowboys! You did a great job. The brown rope didn't look cute? I think any border you choose will frame the top nicely.

    Really cute quilt for a lil cowpoke...yellow or the gold would make a good choice for a border.
    Free motion quilting with a star an loop design would really tie it all together.

    Chele the brown fabric with lassoed rope looked out of place as the inner border thinks it might be the color of it. Hate that when you buy fabric and it doesn't work...lol

    I decided to go with a darker blue and then add the star fabric for the outer border with the red corner blocks which I will put stars appiqued on.

    Kyler's Quilt it a little bigger than I thought turned into a toddler quilt...lol
