    Scrambled 9-Patch from batkis

    This is top number 3 finished in 2013! I am doing a little stash bashing! I had a collections of batik fat quarters that I decided to finally use. I made this scrambled 9-patch using a black on black print for the original center. There are 28 different batiks in this top. I am not sure if I will add a border or not. It is 87 by 87 right now. Any suggestions on a border? Thanks for looking.

    What about using black for your border, it would match the small black sq.

    I love your quilt. Believe it or not, I don't have any batiks in my stash. After seeing your quilt, I might just have to start building one.

    I like that a lot and the use of black really sets off the other colors nicely making them sparkle.

    Beautiful! I would use the same black for the border as you used for the center blocks to set off all the color.

    If you think it needs a border I think a black border would be the best choice.

    It doesn't need borders. A black binding would look nice.
    One step at a time, always forward.

    I agree, I think a black binding is all it needs.

    Sew pretty! The addition of the black is great! Perhaps use it for a thin border, then choose a favorite color for the outer border~~ Just a thought.

    The black makes the batiks shine, a black border would be pretty!
