I found a great pattern for that border that has purses, gloves, high heels and I added Hollywood stars in the corners.

In the background behind the paper dolls, I used two different freehand fillers. One was a peacock feather filler that is a perfect filler for girls dress up playtime. purse border back

The other background filler I used was a daisy filler that mimics the fabric and is a wonderful girly girl pattern to include in this quilt.
