    I like this idea except if possible can you use your leftover fabs and make some sort of small border design with it - I would go long not squares - maybe cut on bias so all the colors are slightly angled.

    Great quilt!!! My address is.... :lol: cheryl :thumbup:

    I like the first layout and the border on the left. Beautiful. I have never done a log cabin quilt. It is on my bucket list

    how about 2 borders; the first on should be black or red; I really like the red; your eyes need a place to rest then the 2nd one I'd do the black w/the small blocks you have displayed. I think the other border is so busy it'll take away from you quilt. Which by the way is gorgeous. I'd make the inside border smaller than the outside one.

    Very striking quilt! I like the border with the individual squares. That would really pull out the colors, in my opinion.

    I like the border on the left with the black and the small squares of color. It frames the quilt nicely without overpowering it. Just my novice opinion.

    And by the way, that is a beautiful quilt.

    Black seems to be your focus fabric, but I think a black border would tend to blur the lines. I'd use one of the brighter colors in the blocks, maybe the one you used for the block center? I don't have the pic up of course and my memory is not real good!
