    I would not put a border and bind it in a darker color. It's very pretty.

    The white border softens the pink and perhaps a darker color to bind the quilt to add a little more contrast. Your quilt is so awesome, just love it to bits!!!! Whatever you decide, it will be perfect!

    you never cease to amaze me with the handsewing pics i see of your beautiful quilts. such labor! i think it needs a border to let your eyes rest and draw out the individuality of the quilt. if the cream is already sewn on, i would finish it with a darker color. if its just basted to see what you think, i would put a small 1.5 inch border in a darker color and then a lighter larger outer border, the pink would be good. either way, it is absolutely beautiful! you have such a talent!! can't wait to see what you can do with your LA!

    What a great scrappy! I love those many fabrics. I agree that a dark border with a medium binding will make the entire piece glow! Please be sure to show us your finished project. Thanks for sharing.

    If you border in pink, I would go darker so that the light pink inside is contained and doesn't seem like it's coming off the sides(not too much darker, just a medium value) Its a great quilt

    Truly beautiful! Pink is not always a favorite of mine, but that is lovely!

    I don't really think it needs a border, but would use a darker (maybe medium) pink for the binding.

    If you do decide on adding a border, a narrow dark strip then a wider medium pink (possibly a print that picks up the colors of the other fabrics used) would be my choice.

    It is beautiful and I bet it was a lot of work to make. Use pink or whatever color makes you happy for the border. Great job on this.

    I would put a narrow border of the same green that is in it, then a wider border of a darker pink.... or else reverse those colours... it will make the green pop..... pink is in the red family and the opposite to red on the colour wheel is green... pink and green go really well with each other....
    joy...

    I agree... you can never have too much pink! I think I'd put a narrow gold/yellow inner border (to match the yellow/gold in the quilt) & then the same pale pink for a wider outer border. This is already beautiful... I love it! It looks vintage... right up my alley!

    I would try to pull out one of the darker colours for a border, but I would audition before choosing. It will talk to you when you have the right colour, but I do not think I would use more pink.

    I vote for a dark border-yummy quilt!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    I love it. a pink, purple, or cream border would work if you choose to add a border. but it is stunning as it is. :-)
