    Is this too much pink?

    Is this too much pink? Should I put a different border on it? Or maybe no border? What do you think?

    Lovely quilt, can't wait to see it finished. I love pink and would add a narrow 1" border of blue or green and then a wide 4" border of dark dark pink. Any border you use will only make it a standout quilt.
    With quilters for friends, I will always be warm.

    I would choose one of the darker colors in the quilt and make a border with that and it would show up more and be a nice "frame" for the whole quilt. It's very pretty!

    I love it. I think a dark border would be perfect.

    So, so vintage looking. I see vintage quilts like this on ebay, many using feedsacks! You have a great one going!
    Yeap, agree with the rest, either no border or a darker border.

    A small border of navy and then back to the pink. The navy will make it pop. That quilt is stunning.

    Your quilt is lovely but I think a navy border or binding will make it pop.

    Love your quilt - very pretty! Our favorite LQS owner is a designer of fabric/patterns, etc. and is in all the magazines. She taught that a 1/4 " trim of a "pop" color before the border makes for a beautiful finish. One of my friends has been doing that on all her quilts and they are stunning. Just a thought ===

    All I can say is "WOW!!". Absolutely stunning. If the quilt size is what you want, I'd just do the darker border & binding (I like the navy idea). If you need it just a little bit bigger, I'd do a 3" navy border, followed by a 2" strip that alternates various colors in the quilt (those would be 2" long each) and finish up with another 3" navy border with binding in navy. It would just nicely frame all the gorgeous blocks. How are you planning to quilt it?

    Since the pink is broken up by other colors, it's not at all "too much!" Beautiful! I think any color border would be lovely.

    A light narrow border and a wider dark border to "frame" your stunning work of art would look wonderful.

    Not for my granddaughter. There's nothing that's too much pink for her. She can't be the only one. I also love the quilt. Maybe GD takes after GM

    I agree with a different color, then dark pink to set it off.
