First of all - there IS a dark purple inner border and the binding will also be the same dark purple. The problem(s) arise starting with the next border. I probably will keep the next border with the roses (I found more fabric tucked away in my stash!).
These are some of the possible combinations I found - and, honestly, I'm on the fence! Let me know which you think will be best. I can't guarantee I will choose that one - but I will certainly take it under strong consideration.
As for WHAT this quilt will be - that's a difficult question. I could turn it into a baby quilt, a table topper, or use as a wall-hanging - and it probably will be either the baby quilt (I've made 4 or 5 already!) or table topper.
|1. Two (2) borders - the dark purple and the floral with a dark purple binding. I like this BUT it is (a) too dark - maybe, (b) tends to emphasize more the pink in the roses. Maybe.|
|2. Four (4) borders - dark purple, followed by two florals with a thin strip (1 inch wide?) to break the expanse. Dark purple binding. This I think is sweet - BUT I think it could use more.... something..... maybe.|
|3. Four (4) borders - like the above EXCEPT the yellow strip is now at probably 1.5-2 inches. I'm not sure but I think I like the narrower yellow border more.|
|5. Like the above - except that now the squares are a variety of yellows. My biggest problem with this is that the yellow squres tend to fade out and I think maybe detract rather than add.|
|6. Ok - now the 2 strips of floral are together with the innermost strip really being part of the square in a square. I like this better than #5.|
