    I want to add border(s) too. I have extra blocks to make it bigger too, but I'm just not sure about the explosion of colors. Help?

    My batiks barfed!

    WOW! I Think it looks great. My daughter would love it it's right up her alley. I think the black sets the colors off. Great job.

    Your explosion of colors is GREAT!!! That's my kind of quilt. Colorful!!! I think a small black border to set it off followed by a wild multicolored print border would be perfect!! Super job!!! :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

    "My batiks barfed!" Honestly, I'm still laughing while I'm typing this! I think your colors are OUTstanding. I also love what the black fabric does. You keep going, girl! If you don't like the quilt, you can always send it to ME! :wink:

    I didn't know there was any such concept as "too bright"! The brighter the better in my book. I think it looks good. And I agree with some of the others...I like the black framing around the outside. Did you try putting the black as and inside border? That might look nice too. Good job.

    I love it!

    Another narrow strip would tame it a bit but I like it wild! It makes me smile.

    No such thing as too bright in my book. The dark color in the border kind stops it. I like it.
