Border Options


Yesterday, I finally had time to finish the main portion of this 9 Patch Pizazz quilt which has been on my design wall since September. With school and the rest of my crazy life, there just isn't much time to sew. I had planned to be gone this weekend, but things changed so I decided I was spending at least one day in my sewing room! It felt so good to be there!

There are 3 border options. If you click on the photo, it should open a larger view in another window. The top left which has two fabrics that are in the quilt, the bottom left with a different inner border and then the one on the right of two similar fabrics. So what's your vote?

Almost forgot to write about my forbidden purchase yesterday. Two yards of a beautiful 2008 Kona floral fabric and 1 yard of a green oriental to go with another project... So I made it two months without a fabric purchase...

Wow! This is lovely. I have this book and I've seen a couple ladies attempt this approach but no one has ever come close.

GREAT JOB!!!!!

Your quilt has turned out beautifully...you know I love oriental fabrics. I believe I would probably pick the left top borders. You have done a great job!'Liz

I really like the one on the right, it brings out the center design. It is a gorgeous quilt.
