    Borders

    I just finished a quilt top with a 5" border in a large floral. The quilt is so small, I would like to add another border and increase the size. If I add a 1" border in a solid, can I add another large floral border like the first one?

    I don't see why not. You could lay the quilt out on a table and put folded pieces of the chosen fabrics beside it and see what you think.
    I do this all the time to judge how wide to make a border or if I like a particular fabric for a border.

      Thank you so much for your input. It makes me a little more brave to move on to finishing.

        I also use Claire┬┤s method to see the fabric that I like, although I use a trick to decide, with the mobile I take a photo with each group of fabrics that I like and then visualize which one I like the most it is very effective to see the final effect
