Frequent question: How do you pick a border for a quilt?

Using a strong color on the border will pull that color from the quilt top and make it dominant. The block size is 12-inches, so the final border is 1/4 of the block width. While borders generally are placed with the smallest width to the interior and larger widths to the exterior edges, this isn’t a rule either.
