  1. I gotta say...it looks grand. Adding a border will bring most people's eye away from the center. I like the dark frame ...it is fabbie by the way

  9. I love the way it turned out! I would say instead of a border, make your binding multi colored. Like sewing blocks together from the different solid colored material and then binding it with them. Could be interesting! Kind of like this: http://www.ohfransson.com/oh_fransson/2009/04/quilt-along-15-making-and-sewing-binding.html scroll down to 5th picture.

  10. Only if you want it to be bigger!

    With or without, I think it would look great.

  11. If the size is alright - no border. Btw - how is your binding? I think a slightly lighter shade in solid would look just right.

  12. So cute but I say it needs a border. The darker fabric on the edge is pretty narrow for a border.

  13. I think it looks great, but with this pattern I would lean towards adding a border. Just my lonely old opinion.

  14. I sent you an e-mail last night, did you get it? The e-mail I got from you yesterday was the first of it's kind and it sounded like you had sent several. I never received those if you did! My blocks were mailed yesterday morning, if you want to use them fine if not please send them back so I can put them into another quilt of my own. I had the blocks done, I was just to organized and put them in a great place and could not find them for the life of me. Sorry, I'm not going to get so organized again. Why try! I do better when I'm not. I love chois. Thanks for understanding.

  17. I LOVE it with no border

    But if you need it bigger, a cute piano key border with all the colors would be cute.

  18. Very cute, Jane - and I think no border - the black print is enought to set it off - what will you use for binding?
    Cheers!
