    I only have one more side of border to attach!!! Does anyone think the green border is to much? This is my second quilt and still somewhat shy about asking for suggestions.

    I like the green border. You are doing great just keep it up and pretty soon you'll be a pro.

    Nice quilt!! I like the border; it acts as a 'stop' for my eyes and sets off the pattern nicely.

    I really like it. Personally, I prefer dark borders. They do stop the eye and act as a structured "frame" around the pattern. Like framing artwork! :lol: You did a great job!!! Keep going!

    You are doing a great job, I agree with all the other comments about the dark border setting it off.

    Please don't be shy in asking for help and advice, I have only been quilting for a few months really, and these guys are so encouraging, and NEVER demeaning, so ask away, no point in struggling when we have an endless source of information right at our fingertips!! :D

    It's great to share :D :D :D
