Talk of the day--mirabelle's wonder. I liked the first border, and wondered why you would take the time to change it, but you were so right. The darker border lets the blocks shine forth. You did such a wonderful job of balancing the light and dark blocks through out the quilt.
So glad to hear everyone survived the holiday and all are getting healthy. Unfortunately I have another trip to NW Iowa as my dear Godmother (88) passed away. Hers will be the third funeral in as many months.
