I wasn't happy with all the fabrics the shop us to make the quilt with, so some months, I substituted my own fabrics for some of the parts and motifs. Based on that experience, I didn't buy the 'finishing kit' for the quilt from the shop. I dug into my own stash and found a nice medium green for a first border. It seemed to brighten up the quilt somewhat, so it seemed a good idea.
Here is the quilt top with the first border added:
I could use some opinions... and ideas if you can think of another color that might look good with this quilt instead of the brick red... I really don't want to change the first border color though, I like the medium green. Help?
