    this pattern (over the river and through the woods) calls for a flying geese boarder, I feel it would be much too busy and take away from all the embroidery, I am thinking of just putting on a plain boarder with cornerstone blocks....what would your vote be?

    I think the flying geese would complement the pattern.

    I think I would like the flying geese as well...or maybe some pieced stars in the border??

    I agree...go with the flying geese in the border. I think they'd be perfect.

    I have seen this completed, with the flying geese. It looks very nice. However, it is your quilt. :)

    I think it looks fine as you have it now if it is going to be a wall hanging. If you want it bigger, then add another border. I don't have good results with flying geese, so am not much of a fan. However, they do look nice when other people do them.

    I had to look up the pattern to see it with the flying geese and if it were my quilt I would finish it just where you have it now. In the picture the flying geese look too heavy-IMO. I really like the fabrics you have used.

    I cannot do flying geese. After the second one they start to tilt and look drunk. I like your quilt the way it is but if you were to put another border on, I think I'd use pieced stars. (I avoid flying geese at all costs LOL) You've done a beautiful job.

    After you have put so much work into your beautiful quilt, don't stop now. I have seen it completed and it was gorgeous. You won't regret doing the extra work.

    If you have enough fabric, I think the flying geese would be nice.

    I think I see what you mean. I have an idea... why not flying geese only on the top and bottom....little blocks on the corners to control the geese from stealing the show and using one of the tan fabrics for the border to emphasize the scenery. What do you think?
    That quilt is beautiful and I love what is happening to the art.:>)

    Unless you need the extra width, I think it does not need anything more. I like the border it has currently.

    I think the flying geese will finish it off very nicely. Beautiful quilt.
