True

Wow this is one gorgeous quilt! Amazing piece of art. I like the white but have you thought of adding another in either pink, blue or scrappy? Either way it is lovely.

Robynie

True I've been messing around with it a bit now that I have it on the computer, and I'm considering adding some light pink to the border. I don't want to do anything too busy because it's already so so busy, but I'm thinking like a light pink and white HST border?

True

Robynie oh that would be well worth a try...it is really stunning. The current white provides a nice resting place for eyes so it allows you some room to play in final border. And I do not like too busy but love this...nice work.

HawkFan

This is beautiful. The small corner squares are a nice detail.

stitchcat

Really nice quilt! Congratulations!

So this is where that little blue star is going. What are you going to bind it with? It seems with a lighter border you would need a contrasting color to hold it all together. Maybe a bright aqua like in the strips? Whatever you do, it'll be gorgeous.

The more I look at it, the more I like the white border. smile

This is gorgeous! I love the scrappiness of it!

Terryt1955

Beautiful! I think the quilt can definitely handle a 2nd border and I would love to see you use either the same pink you used for the stars or the aqua. The white will allow you to rest the eye and the final border will say here I am!

Stunning - this is almost what I will be asking for for when I am hive queen. It incorporates 2 of my favourite blocks.

Love this.

HawkFan

I love the border!

Terryt1955

I was just going to say the same thing about the border! I'm pinning it for future reference!

HawkFan

Terryt1955 - great minds...I pinned it too!

Robynie

HawkFan Terryt1955 Thanks! I wanted something that went with the "pointyness" of the rest of the quilt, but wouldn't lose half its points when I attach the binding. This was as pointy as I could come up with :)

I love everything about this one - that border is great (and so are the stars in the corners)...and the string pieced stars with all those bright happy colors are just jaw dropping! Great job!!!

Skynme

So pretty! I love those bursts of lime green.

How pretty! The colors remind me of spring. You just brought a smile to my day.

Joke

Gorgeous!

True

What an amazing finish!

Mymble

So great- really wonderful color choices, love this pattern and the binding is perfect!

Terryt1955

Can I just repeat myself and say how much I love this border? And the binding is perfect!
