Suggestions Needed!!!!

Thank all of you for the kind words of comfort given to me during the past few weeks.

In the midst of all, I started a new project to keep me occupied.

The quilt is from this book . . .

Here is the quilt from the book . . .

I want the quilt to be bigger than the pattern, so I plan to add some borders. My thought is to add a 1 inch pink border.  Then,  a 4 or 5 inch pieced border.  I would like that border to be a pieced block. I was thinking maybe star blocks or pinwheel blocks.  Then I would add another inch or so solid border.

So, my friends, the question is "What borders to you suggest I add?" Star blocks? Pinwheel blocks? Or another idea altogether?

I'm linking to Judy at Patchwork Times for Design Wall Monday.

Happy snipping, stitching, and quilting.


  1. I think a variation of a friendship star, that make it look like a ribbon effect would be nice next to the swags.

  2. How about a solid white border with 4 appliquéd cornerstones? You could put a smaller version of the flower on each corner. I am afraid that a busy patchwork might detract from the beautiful appliqué you have already done.
