The center is complete! Now the border work begins on the Churn Dash quilt.
I love EQ7. This program has greatly improved my ability to imagine what the end quilt will look like! It beats drawing by hand, hands down.
Let’s look at some options…
1. White outer border, colored (purple) inner border.
2. White outer border, white inner border.
3. Black outer border, black inner border.
4. Colored Outer border, colored inner border (purple).
6. Thin Black outer, think black inner.
Do any of these options jump out at you? I’d like to hear your choice. Tomorrow I’ll let you know mine!

I find the black borders striking… it seems to make the pattern stand out better. Haven’t made up my mind yet on the wide or the narrow. If the quilt is quite large I think I would opt for the narrow #6… but I like the dominating effect it has in #3.
Thanks Mom. A lot of people are liking #3!
# 3; # 4 & #6 all appeal to me. The others are too “busy” for a quilt with such dynamic blocks. I like the wider outer border best. I guess you have to decide how you are going to use it…do you need the width?
ooh! Thank you! I think a lot of people are liking #3!
Either 3 or 6 are the best in my opinion. The black frames the colorful blocks and calms things down. 6 showcases the blocks a little more than 3 with the thin border. I couldn’t decide between the two but 3 or 6 get my vote. Great work, I love EQ7 as well.
Thanks Robin, #3 is really getting a lot of love.
I like the white inner/outer boarder best.
ooh! I like that one too! Thanks Deborah!
3 & 6.
Black seems to make the colors pop.
Wow, lot’s of votes for 3 and 6!
No. 3 is my favorite…really sets off the quilt nicely. -Kathy
