JA Quilt Update

For the last two weeks I've been out of school. About all I have done is work on this quilt top. I'm just about finished! All I need to do is put some borders around it.

I've been trying to think of what kind of borders I should use. I kind of like this one. I want something that has some of the pink colors in the pieced part of the quilt. The problem is that there are so many to choose from. I could go from pale pink to bright hot pink to bright red.

Tell me what you think.

I think you shouldn't go too crazy with the pink color. I don't know if you want it to look like an authentic Austen style blanket that looks like it could be from back then. I say find a cute pale pink that accents but its too distracting.

Sarah, thanks for the comments. You forced me to go to the fabric store I should have gone to in the first place. They have an incredible variety for fabric. They even have the dark manly colors of flannel I was telling you about.
