It would just nicely frame all the gorgeous blocks. How are you planning to quilt it?
    I'm not sure yet. I usually don't have a clue until I get it in the hoop. Most of the time I do what I call shadow quilt, following the design just outside of the seam allowance.

    my, you've been busy! Other than the pink, I see no predominate color. A dark border would tie it together, then a pink to finish it off would be great. Size would depend on the finished size you're looking for. Can't wait to see what it looks like quilted! Have you got your longarm yet??

    no...i think it looks great...the white border looks good, but i wonder if a dark blue border will make the colors pop...just a thought:-)
    So many quilts, so little time :-)

    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.
    I agree with mom-6.

    Is this a periwinkle star? My mother, who is now deceased, made some of these. I would add a navy and dark pink like was previously suggested. I think all quilts need 1 or 2 borders. It is beautiful and lots of work!

    I vote for a medium green border to compliment the green and help bring some of the green in the quilt out. I think the dark blue would be too stark for the quilt. No more pinks. There is a perfect amount in there to shimmer and pop. Very pretty and very vintage looking, an heirloom for sure.

    I think it's perfect as is. No border needed.
