Bee in my Bonnet Row Along quilt is together...Almost

Good morning! I got my Row Along quilt rows sewn together! I don't have the border added yet but here's the quilt without the borders:

It's hard to get a photo of the quilt because I have so much stuff in my sewing room. Here's the top of the quilt:
and here's the bottom of the quilt:
I really enjoyed doing this quilt and am trying to decide what color to make the border. Many of the people in the Row Along Flickr group have done a pieced border but I think that takes away some from the quilt center. Lori Holt, who designed this pattern, did a green gingham border. It looks really good. So I'm trying to decide. I didn't get anything done on the Farmer's Wife quilt top this weekend because I spent Saturday with family and worked on Sunday.

It would look cool if you can find a reverse polka dot that matches your background, as solid color with tiny white polka dots. :)

Oh my, I really like your quilt top- so bright and cheerful. I do agree that a pieced border would take away from the blocks. I usually like a TOT to frame a busy center.

WOW, Looks great! I think a Green border would frame it well. Have fun getting it all finished.

Such a pretty quilt. Love the polka dot background.

Lovely quilt. Any of colours would look great as the border,. The border goes together very quickly, and, I think, frames it beautifully. Looking forward to seeing this with your chosen border.
