    Oooooohhh - drooling - love it love it! Border, agree - a little dash of red and a big splash of either dark or light, which ever you want to pull out of the blocks.

    Do you want to do simple strips, or do you want to do something like a ribbon effect? A nice collection of borders:

    I was thinking of the 'curling ribbon' with your quilt ...

    I'd choose red. It will give it a dramatic effect. Very nice job on this.

    i also immediately thought of red...

    it will bring out the little bit from the flowers/what not that is already peeking out of your current choice of fabrics...

    they are gorgeous fabrics by the by...and a beautiful pattern...

    cant wait to see it finished

    I think any bright color would look good like a neon green or pink. I like the black and white prints, it is going to be a beautiful quilt when you get it finished.

    Love it. I would put a 1" red border around it before an outside border so you have just a touch of red or another bright color

    I love what you have so far! :thumbup:
    Just my opinion, but if I were doing this, I would use red sashing - put 4 blocks together and sash with red. Then also use narrow red border, then black border, then red again.
    Hey, I said it was "just my opinion"

    It's funny you should say that, I was think about sashing myself...thanks for you opinion
    Katt
    would you put the sashing between the each row of 4 block or put 4 complete blocks together then the sashing...just a thought

    It's going to be beautiful. I would use red to bring out the small flowers in the print.

    I think a red border would look good.

    Definitely needs at least a narrow red border then maybe one of the fabrics you used in the quilt. It will be very pretty whatever you decide to do. Oh yes, then I would probably do a red or black binding.
