Whadda ya think?

Do I use the orange polkadot for a border? or do I use this piece for a back and border it with white (or something else)? Mind you, the border won't be nearly this wide.


Aeris didn't know either. Silly Booga!


This little quilt will be for a girl at work who is having a baby boy in January. I wish I had more of these fabrics, but I have used every little scrap I had of them and they don't have them at Joann's anymore. They had been sitting in my stash for a little while. I think they might still have the orange tone on tone stripe, but that's all.

As a side note, I found it rather humorous that last night when I showed it to my husband (when he was groggy from napping) he at first thought the little crabs were "Mr. Kool-Aid" :0)

I love the colors in this quilt. I like the orange for visual stimulation. That is supposed to good for babies, right?

I like the orange border and I think it would look great that wide too. Good luck on whatever you decide. I'm sure it will look great!

I love the orange border. It really makes all the other colors really pop. Doesn't this part just drive you crazy sometimes? Trying to decide which fabric to use....
Can't wait to see what you decide to do.

I was totally shocked when I saw the name of your cat. We have a 2 year old cat that my son named Aeris. He even told me how to spell it. LOL I thought he had made the name up. Your Aeris is a beauty, by the way. Ours is a short haired calico. Yep, I like the orange borders too.
