    Awesome quilt! What an undertaking that was. I definitely think the pink border with the blue inner one. It does bring out the blue in your blocks. Beautiful

    Monica, wouldn't change a thing with how you've got it framed. Run with it, looks awesome!

    I love the pink border, but would not use the thin blue...

    I guess I come at it from an embroidery sampler perspective...I like it without a border, as a wall hanging...very pretty, any way you choose!

    I'm not usually a border person but for this one I would add borders.

    Wow your quilt is spectacular and what ALOT of work! Whew! How long did it take to make all those blocks? I do think it needs a border and I am in the single border pink camp. You already have lots of colors going on and I think the blue might make it look too busy. But however you decide I am sure it will look great.

    It's so awesome, Monica. I think a border is a good plan, and I would go with both. The blue brings out some of the blues in the blocks; just the pink will bring out mostly the pinks. So I say both.

    I really like the pink border - but, my preference only, I would put a small white inner border (not too crazy about the blue).
