    I LOVE it! The larger border helps bring out the centers, I think you should leave it like it is, my personal opinion. Beautiful quilt, beautiful wedding gift. It also depends on how big you want the finished quilt size to be, about the borders, I suppose.

    It is a beautiful quilt. I, too, would narrow up the light border and add a dark border to hold the quilt together more.

    YEe, I agree... that's what I'd do, too. This is just a gorgeous quilt any way you cut it! I don't blame your kids for wanting this beautiful fabric in their wedding quilt. I know your DD & DSIL will love & treasure it for years & years to come

    Beautiful quilt, your DD will love it. I also agree, a wider border will finish it off. Thanks for sharing.

    Very pretty, I think the border width is right.

    It is a fabulous quilt and the border size works well with the size of the quilt. IMHO a narrower border would look scimpy on this stunning work. Excited to see it finished.

    So dimensional. So 3-D! I love it! Just beautiful. They can't but love it! ... and I'm with burchquilts and krafty14 on finish. Light with dark border/binding will define it ... thank you _so_ much for sharing!

    Beautiful quilt, and with the way you pieced and put your color scheme together, I have no doubt you will make the right decision about the border. Kudos!

    I can agree with a couple of the others, leave it the way it is & bind with the dark. Give your quilter a place to play with design. I'm sure she can come up with something awesome!

    I like the wider border but would do a narrow in light and a wide border in a darker color, the quilt is gorgeous can't wait to see it finished
