    Truly stunning! I agree! Go with a narrowish black border!

    WOW..this is awesome. I would definitely use black as border. Maybe the width of 2 or 3 strips (same width as all the other strips). You did a beautiful job.

    Oh, also meant to say bind in black as well. :)

    This has turned out so awesome. I would do a thin black border, maybe 1" finished then do a piano key and make it as long as you want to get it up to size but I would make it maybe 3" wide of all those jewel tones. Unless you still have strips cut from your cabins then use those. The width of the piano key border would then be dependent on your strip sizes. Then I would do another thin black just to stabalize the piano key, (or you could stay stitch it) and bind it in black. I love your setting for the LC blocks. The middle part in black reminds me of a compass.

    Edited to add, I didn't read any of the responses before posting so will go back and read them now. Apologies if I repeated something someone else said. OK I just went back and read and seems quite a few of us had that piano key idea. I like the idea of the squares too, alternating with the black. Great minds think alike :lol:

    Very pretty quilt. How about a border that is black sections with sections of piano keys in the colors you used in the main part of the quilt.

    I would use a plain border, pulling a color from the quilt, but finish the points in that border. Then I would use black.

    Great colors in your log cabin. I like that second border sample you have showing. The one with the rectangle colors in it. I think that would look great! Though the other one would also work.

    I love your "little" squares in the black border. Nice contrast that way. That would be my choice. But gorgeous quilt in any case.

    I think this is the border that I am going to go with. What do you think?
