    Border colors

    image.jpg image.jpg

    Do these colors look odd? Are two borders usually inside a lighter color than the outside? I'm uncertain right now if what to do.


    Editing to add a second picture of the blue border inside. I may have to buy more black to make the second border wider.

    This is going to be a table topper. I wanted something different than a long runner. However, I may have to make this again as a lap quilt. I cut the size down to use 5" squares. The original uses 6". Maybe I'll buy another layer cake and use 10".

    I like this pattern because it's easy to change sizes.

    Great quilt.. to my mind... you choose what YOU like.. I have not "rules" when I create things... I like your choice I think the black grounds it and then I'd pick the color I like best for my border... and then of course you could do the complete reverse.. pick a color for the narrow and frame with black.. see... all in the eye of the beholder!!!

      I think I'd reverse them w/the light on the inner border. I love your quilt!

          I think the black on the inside pulls all of the beautiful colors together and that blue is georgeous - so I'm sure it will be beautiful whichever way you choose.

              Beautiful quilttop
              I would go with the black as inner border, seems the best in my opinion, but as said before, there are no rules you do what you like best.

              Have fun with it!!

                Love the top. I like the blue on the inside with black outside. I'm sure it's gonna look great whatever you chose.

                  I like the second picture best, especially for a table topper.

                  H - is it HELPFUL?
                  I - is it INSPIRING?
                  N - is it NECESSARY?
                  K - is it KIND?

                      I vote for blue as the inner border & black as the outer border. It sets off the blocks better, in my opinion. JCY

                          Ladies, you are spot on! I sewed the borders on today and fudged my way through mitered corners to boot. I have a nice deep purple for the backing and but am still deciding on the binding color.

                          edited because I was having picture issues.

                              I like the black inner border, but remember that there are no quilt police
