    Dulls the glow of the actual Bargello.
    I agree.

    IMHO, a simple plain border will not detract from the beauty of the quilt.

    Simple double border. The quilt is spectacular and would not want to draw away from that.

    The bargello top is very pretty, and I would just do the simple borders in photo 1. Let the bargello shine!

    I like the first one. The second is a possibility if the cornerstone is a miniature bargello.

    I like the first border, too. The bargello is so beautiful that it would be a shame to divert the eye from it. I think the corner pieces also divert attention.

    Wonderful work

    I like the second last one with the little strips of bargello. What a gorgeous quilt.

    I like the simple boarder with the light and dark...it really sets off the bargello :)

    I vote for the first, simple boarder, to. Really makes all your work pop!

    I agree with the other ladies...the simple border is super. But I also like the idea of a few prairie points to accent the colors in the bargello. Great quilt and colors.

    Totally agree, the others pull your eyes away from the beautiful quilt.

    I like the first option - plain & simple, does not detract from the bargello pattern. I love the quilt, the colours are so calming.

    I agree the first one...but, the prarie points really caught my attention also. Decisions can be so confusing. Good luck and share what you decide.

    I like the first one - your bargello is gorgeous and it won't steal the spotlight.
