    i meant background fabric..the whiteish one. it looks like a small print maybe? whatever it is, you got the perfect color combo!

    Really nice. I think an orange border would really make the quilt pop!

    Very nice, I like the idea of a tan border, but if you like the brighter colours go for them.

    WONDERFUL QUILT! I love the shadow box pattern! Borders - I would do first border in tan (probably same size as sashing, else very thin), final border in the medium green, all with black binding.

    I've made 2 of these quilts...one for my mother and one for me. I'd vote for orange in the border...or at least for a small inner border.

    I think you need an orange border. It's a beautiful quilt.
