The dark background allows it to work without a border. The light backgrounds would look unfinished I would think. I am working on mine but will need to stop soon to go buy DH a new recliner. I think it is time. He won't buy stuff like that for himself but I am pushing him. I know he wants one from many comments he has made.
Love the brights in your quilt. Good job!
Beautiful, Carol W. Love your colors!
WTG Carol W. I love the way the bright colors all pop on your quilt. Great job!

I wouldn't call you crazy. I'd call you smart like a fox. That dark color background sets off the scappy block beautifully. Congrats on a great looking quilt.
Wow Carol!! I love love love you top! I am a huge fan of bright colors!
I have the top put together. Still don't have a border on. Can't quite decide on a fabric yet! Lol. I have it draped over the rails on the long arm so I can keep waiting for it to talk to me. So far I'm just hearing little whispers. Lol.
Zsofia I love you quilt too! The background is so dramatic!
No power for the computer near most of the bookshelves. That is the way we do it between classes. She scans, I read the title off the computer. It takes a fraction of the time. But as long as she has students in the library, books to computer it is.
Carol and Zofia, those are so beautiful. I have a dark back ground fabric as well and I plan to add a thin inner border of a bright color, and then the dark background for the outer border.
I don't have borders picked out yet.
Very striking Carol, I love the colours.
Very pretty Jeanine. Your contrast is wonderful between the background and the blocks. Great job.
Not crazy Zsofia, I don't plan on a border either. I am still trying to get my blocks so the fabrics are not side by side. hard without anywhere to really lay them out and no design wall.
Pretty! I know you dont need any help picking out your border, if anything I need your help. But.... when I open this and saw the little bit of blue from your back board I really liked the look. Just my too cents. I still need to sew my side panels on still. I think I need yellow-organish color. to contrast my background fabric and bring out my 16 patches but.... then my butterflies look like they are going to fly away and I feel like I need to tone it down. haha well back to sewing and contiuning to assumtion that people just dont need points
