    I'm so exited about this quilt. I was inspired by ksea's log cabin quilt. Any suggestions a border? I want it to be a little bit larger. Should I go with wide a border? What color would you suggest. I have also thought about using more blocks.

    Thanks for looking,

    Robyn

    That is very pretty. I don't know what I would do for a border, maybe pulling your favourite colour from the brights.

    Love your quilt! I would probably look for a big print with some of those bright colors in it.

    I think a black border would be nice unless you want it
    lots bigger.........then maybe also a narrow border of several
    of the bright colors

    beautiful quilt and wonderful colors! I would use a narrow black border, followed by a slightly wider border of squares from each of the colors alternating with black squares, then a wider black border and bound in black. Or maybe even just a thin border made of the center block color between two black borders.

    This is what I was thinking...a small black inner boarder, then a bright graphic outer boarder that compliments the brights. Floral would look okay if can't get graphic....the top is fabulously brilliant

    Have to agree with this idea. If you don't want to add this much, I'd vote for a solid black border.

    That looks great! If it were mine, I'd put 2 black borders, one smaller, one larger, separated by one of the colors in the blocks. It would frame it like a piece of artwork. What I am talking about is similar to the picture in the link below, but with wider borders.

    I like this idea. I had thought about a narrow black border, followed by a piano key border of the colors alternated with black, and then a wide black border.

    To everyone My DH and I would like to say thanks for all your wonderful comments and encouragement while I have been working on this. This is going to be my first completed quilt. I have a few UFO's that have not been finished yet.

    I love your quilt top...as well as your quote(Disabled does not mean unable.) I have a severe hearing loss, and some people equate "deaf" with "dumb"...their loss as I am by no means "dumb"...ok...maybe a little wacky around the edges...lol...
