what border do you like best?


this runner is next up after the nieces are done
this red is pretty but a little "orangy" compared to the ones in the piecing......
the gold I kind of like


how about both?


or a green?
maybe too muddy looking?  needs to be brighter I think


or a beigy paisley.......looks ":pink" next to it

isnt it funny how some fabrics can look so different depending on what they are next to
I want to set off the piecing with a small border all around.
what do you think?
Do I need to buy something Christmassy?
I need to split it in half and make TWO........
and I had strips from a friend so none of the fabrics in the piecing do I have
what to do............
what would YOU do?
One is for me so I don't care if I make the red and it is different
the other is a gift.......so I am being a little fussy choosing

  1. I like both the gold and the beige...it's hard to find just the "right" border--hugs, Julierose

  2. I like the skinny gold with a red - nothing wrong with the red. And if you have enough gold - use for binding.

  4. It's probably too late for my opinion but I think I'd put a gold inner border and a red outer border.
