Here are some of my choices for borders. I think the blue fabric dulls the center too much. The fabric has a floral pattern, which might be a pleasant change from the other almost solidy fabrics. Or not... Probably a completely horrible choice. I'm ruling it out - executive decision.
I quite like the pink, but am not thrilled it's a batik, so harder to quilt through. Maybe it would be better as the inner border with the deep purple around the edge. What do you think? The advantage to the purple is that it's a fairly new Moda and I could cry and cry and get a friend to take pity on me and go get me some more.
Ooh, but look at that pink -- it's bright and happy. It's not like I can decorate with much pink around the house (don't want to drive the dh completely around the bend) but how can he object to a quilt that will barely see the light of day and undoubtedly spend a great deal of time all wadded up? he he he. (No, I'll make the bed with the pretty new quilt on it, really I will)
I am also toying with the idea of piecing a border. Toying mentally, not actually sewing anything together. Maybe I'll go to that Plan B if I sew on the big borders and they zap the life out of this quilt.
