    Beautiful, I just love that fabric and the pattern, I like the border the way it is, you don't want it to dark, it is a very striking quilt.

    Fabric is too light to be a 5 inch border. A narrower light and then a wider dark, maybe?

    It is gorgeous. It is almost luminous. I probably would have put an even wider border in the light. Love it just like it is.

    I think it's beautiful. Peggy is right, a larger dark border would really look great!

    WOW love the colors and pattern. Great job. I think I would like a narrow light and then wider dark boarder too.

    A fine quilt. I would make that border narrower and add one of the deep red, if you have enough.

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

    Oh my---just beautiful. I see a darker outside border--next to a narrower light one ---to "hold it all in" --- just my thought.

    That is exactly what I did and I do like the looks of the darker outer border. I left the yellow border 4" so it still makes a statement.
    Thanks to everyone for your lovely comments. I really am happy with how it turned out, in spite of the tears and ripping that were a part of making it happen!

    Love, love your top....it looks fantastic... I like the light border but I personally think it needs a dark for binding to finish...
    Could you share the name of the pattern... looked and can't find on web...
    Thanks for sharing...

    Very pretty! I think I'd have added a narrow black border before adding the lighter border, but, as Peggy suggested, it would make a nice area for the LAQ to do something special, so maybe bind it in black to pick up the black in the background fabric?
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    I love the floaty feeling of the quilt and I like the broader border.

    I agree with you. This quilt really demonstrates how the placement of colors can totally change the end result of a block. I haven't made a "Thinking Outside the Box", but looks like this one is moving up higher on my Bucket list.

    It may not be what you envisioned, but it turned out pretty amazing. I think your borders are fine.

    Beautiful quilt and I like the idea of just binding it in a darker colour
