    Going to put one more border on this and call it done! Any ideas? I am anxious to be done with this one. Didn't turn out the same as it did in my mind. LOL

    Beautiful! I'd do the light pink or green as a small final border.

    I, also, would do the black dot. Kinda gives the whole thing FRAME. IT is beautiful. Great work!

    I think the black with white polka dots would be lovely.

    If you have enough fabric, the dots for the binding, too.

    Thanks everyone. Don't know that I have enough of the black dot left so............guess I will hope that the store still has some! A really good excuse to buy some fabric. I need to finish this quilt. LOL

    I think you should go with the light green.

    I like this idea. I was going to suggest repeating the pink but I like the green idea for interest. Then bind it with the black and white polk-a-dot for the grand finish.

    It looks finished to me and very pretty (but the polka dot would work).

    I had to come back and say the reason I suggested the green is because when I look at the quilt I see the pink and black polka dots so I think a green border would tie all the colors together.

    ditto - i think more green will balance out the center colors and i think the black dot binding will wrap it all up. i love it. sorry i'm down to the use of my left hand only...no caps

    Thanks, I am beginning to like the idea of using the light green for the border and the black dot for the binding. Off to audition borders now. Thanks everyone.

    I wouldn't do another border... I'd just use the black pot-a-dot as binding.

    yep, I think that would be awesome. I first thought of the pink but the green would pull out the center & tie it all together. A plain black might work nicely too. Whatever you chose the quilt is fabulous, can't wait to see it finished!

    I think green for the border and polka dot for the binding or just bind it. Use the same size green border as the other borders. It's a beautiful quilt.

    Light green then the polka dots as the binding or outer border.

    Very eloquent quilt.

    I agree with the black polka dot, but if you don't have enough and the store doesn't have more, make a patchwork border, using the green, pink and polkadot. Than would be neat.
