    I also sent the pictures to my sister, my niece's mother. Before she was a teacher and principal, she was an art major... but more importantly, she knows what her daughter likes.

    She picked the thin dark green, bargello pieces with a wider dark green border. But she thought it was important to match the bargello pieces to the actual quilt.

    I have the small dark green border and two of the bargello strips on. The larger green border is just setting next to it.

    What do you think?
    This is the best one- like it :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

    I like the first too! Keep it simple as the main part is complex and where you want your eyes to travel to and be framed! Nice work!
    Go forth and sew!

    I love them all, but agree with PWinston........ love the thin bargello strip with the dark fabric.... sets off your work nicely without distracting from it
    If you see someone without a smile, give them one of yours!

    Beautiful quilt, nicely done, I think that the first option, it sets off the bargello complexity.

    I love these colors together! and I think I like the simple one (the first shown). but wait, I think I like the strip of color between 2 dark borders. No, maybe the strip of wide bargello and. . . let us know what you choose!

    I like the first photo. It looks like it just finishes off the whole quilt. Beautiful quilt.
