Any suggestions on a border? Thanks for looking.
    I think it would look super, framed with a border using the centre dark fabric, or something similar, a dark toned one will really make the wonderful fabrics pop. Just love quilt but I am biased as I am a huge D9P fan

    WOW! The fabrics are gorgeous together! I guess you could use just about any of these colors for border and binding, although the black might really make it pop?
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    That is a stunning quilt. I wouldn't put any border on it unless you need it to be larger. Bind it in the same black you used in the quilt. Or if you need it to be a bit larger, use the black and then bind it in batiks -- pieced together every 18-22 inches.

    Beautiful quilt and beautiful fabric. I think at least a small - 3" or so black border would really set the quilt. It's amazing how simple patterns can really "sing" with the fabrics you choose, but I have always loved the batiks, need to get busy and make my Boston Commons in all batik fabrics.

    Very pretty. I think if you want a border any dark color that you've used in the quilt would work.

    Id suggest a black narrow border, say cut at 2 1/2" so ends at 2 " and then a wider scrappy border, maybe of left overs....that is one pretty quilt!! How many fat quarters did you start with?? I've also been saving batiks.....

    I think I'd do a black border then bind with a scrappy binding from your leftovers if you have enough.

    I believe UFOs are like scraps, ferns and dust bunnies. Once you get two, they send spores out into the air and more just happen anywhere the spores meet.

    So gorgeous, electrifying! Could you make a border with each of the block's material?

    A thin black border (if you have more of what you used for the centers would be nice) and then maybe a piano key using more of the batiks? It's really pretty!

    I'm a bit late in catching up on the Board, but I sure love this quilt! It is drop-dead gorgeous! I agree with many of the posters in that, unless it needs to be bigger, go with the black binding. I'd also be interested in knowing what size squares you used. Thank you for sharing this lovely quilt!
    When someone mentions quilting, I go to pieces!

    I think it just needs a frame, use a border or coloured binding. Beautiful quilt

    I don't think a border is necessary.

    I agree. I just love batiks. That is one beautiful quilt top.
