Heart for a quilt friend. Our Hearts Go Out To You

 Our Orchard quilt group makes a quilt with hearts for any of our members that has a bad thing happen in their life. One of our members had a daughter disappear. For over a week and a half she was in turmoil  over her daughter. Happy to say it turned out OK . She was found. The other members and I got together and started a quilt for our very stressed Mom.
 We all made blocks with purples as that's her favorite color. There are only 7 of us so we all made more than one.
My DD Jennie got the flower print and I had the cornerstone fabric from a embroidered quilt I put to gather for my Mom.
Now to decide if I need to add some kind of border or not? It is 57"x74" . That's a nice size to cuddle up in.
I have to think on it for a day. A small white border?  A magenta like the cornerstones?  Or leave it the way it is? Then what fabric for the binding?
Until next time keep quilting. Flicsha

What an amazingly sweet thing to do, I kind of like it as it is, but either way, it's beautiful, I'm sure she'll love it.
