    Default Mom's Quilt - which would you choose?

    It's border time!

    Which one would you choose

    Lemon yellow with white dragonflies? It kind of reminds me of why I chose the pattern - garden theme

    The rest of the colors are pretty vibrant - I think it might need to be tamed down some. 1st and 3rd border are the same 2" with a strip of the strip-sets like Chinese coins, then one more border to bring it up to a snuggly size, undetermined at this point. I haven't measured it out yet, trying to get a feel for it. Think the backing is going to be the black with multi-colored kitties on it, if I have enough left, but that's doubtful without a lot of extra gerrymandering.

    So opinions? Thanks for all your help with this one.

    For me I like the blue best. Not a yellow person and I don't like the white dotty with it,

    Sky blue with white stars for sure! It frames it beautifully.

    I like either yellow or blue for the borders. Using the black as the backing fabric sounds great!
