Default Seeking your advice . . .

I talked before about my idea to use a 4-patch posey block with the Garden Twist pattern. I'm doing the borders now, and am pretty pleased. The problem is that to cover the matterss on the bed I'm making it for, I need wider borders. So I'm auditioning these two proposals. I've already done a blue border all around. My plan was to then do a wide border of the main fabric. Now, since I want a wider border, I'm considering adding the main fabric and then a border of the 4PP blocks alternated with the twist blocks . . . or the blocks first and then the main fabric . . . that's where this great opinionated group can help me out. Give me your opinions as to which border order to use . . . or other alternatives if you wish. Thanks!

Sorry . . . working on attachments . . . please bear with me.

I would go back to the main posie material only. Not more posie and then a thinner green on the very outside. It's very pretty.

I think the blocks first, then the main fabric - it's VERY pretty so far!

The second choice looks best IMHO. Whatever you do will look great!
