    I think I would go for the darker maroon print for the border and one of your brown prints for the binding.
    Super job on your quilt top, love the colors.

Although now that I look again, I really love the deep red (maroon?) too.


    The good news is - you can do whatever you like the best.
    I agree! Prink inner and Brown outer. I love this quilt! You did an awesome job
    Thank you,

    Great job for a first quilt. You should see my first quilt!
    Looking at it today, I know it is awful.
    Now, I study each pattern to see if I'll have trouble with it or if is harder than I want to attempt.
    I miss those early quilting days when I would jump right in and make whatever took my fancy.

    Maybe you can give me advice, I've been in a guild for years and still trying to sew a straight 1/4 inch haven't progressed beyond stitching squares and rectangles. Made a Xblock quilt which sits on my wall.

    You did a wonderful job on your quilt and if you hadn't told us, I wouldn't have guessed this was a first quilt at all! I echo a previous poster who suggested a pink border and chocolate binding. Jenny's ultimate binding tutorial is fantastic and I highly recommend it if you aren't experienced with binding.

    I'm just popping in to welcome you to the forum. Your quilt is so pretty that anything will work as a border.

    Cathy, a great job for a first quilt...I think you should be very proud...I feel pulling any color from the quilt would do fine for the border...
