Need Advice - Quick!



I am trying to get this quilt done for a bridal shower tomorrow - I know, I know, but this time its not my fault - the shower was planned on very short notice! Anyway, I have the blocks just about done but I am undecided on how to quilt the borders with the black background. At first I was thinking a floral & leaf vine but after stippling in the blocks I'm wondering if cross-hatching might look better. Only problem with cross hatching is it will be very time consuming and I don't have enough time as it it! Here is a close up:

I plan to finish it after work so any suggestions left in comments today would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!!!!!

Have a Pieceful Day!

I think you should go with the leaf & vine. It will go with the fabric and as time is of the essence, it is your better choice. It will look great!

I'd go for the leave and vine too.. much better for your sanity and it would definately compliment the fabric..

I would do the leave and vine too. It will look fantastic and as time is an issue, it would be the better choice.
I actually think that it would look better too. Good Luck!

I think the leaf and vine design is a great idea. In the interest of time this is what I would do.

Beautiful quilt! I have to agree with everyone else--of course, I'm late, as usually, so hopefully you have it done by now. I bet the recipient will love it whatever you decide.

Your quilt looks fantastic, the colours are great....time is not on your side, so the floral and leaf vine sounds good to me...
