    That is lovely. I'm thrilled you found the fabrics at WalMart. I don't think it needs a border, but if you wanted to add one - black would be my choice.

    What a pretty quilt!

    How about just a straight line down the middle of the stripes in the color they are. It would help the diamond shape show up without messing up the design. I might put on a 3 or 4 inch black border just to have a place for the eye to rest.

    Beautiful happy quilt!!! The colors are wonderful. I was always told that a simple meander is best for a busy quilt. Just an idea....show us again when finished

    Stunning quilt in great colors. I'm not one with great quilting experience so would to look to others on this board that are, however, IMO I'd do an all over quilting since the quilt doesn't have a lot of open area.

    Happy, happy, happy! what a happy quilt! Think I'd do a simple cross-hatch "following" the black diagonals. That way the pattern and colors will remain the focus IMO.

    Nice job. It's incredibly bright and vivid! I don't think I'd get much sleep under such a bright quilt! lol I'd probably use black to bind it to tie all the black zig zags together, but I think you're right...no border.
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    Very sticking and the pattern looks like it might be easier than it looks. Great concept. Thanks for sharing.

    Very pretty quilt! Without knowing what your skills are or what sort of equipment you have, it's difficult to make suggestions on how to quilt it. But, with a quilt that colorful, even a simple meander would look great...the piecing will surely outshine whatever you do for quilting.

    OMG. that is gorgeous. I love the bright colors. I am no help on the quilting part. I take mine to a long are quilting in town and she helps me decide what she will do to them. She is wonderful. Someday I will be able to do my own I hope.
