I searched high and low for a border from fabrics in my stash. I'm trying to not buy more fabric! Couldn't find anything, so found a great fabric online and ordered it. When it arrived, I loved the fabric but it looked awful with my quilt. It was too distracting. Discouraged, I rummaged through my stash once again (which is an exercise that can take hours), only to find this purple that was HIDING from me the first time around!
The size is 81" x 65", so about a twin size. There are 48 12" blocks. half the blocks are pieced to have the orange on the left, the other half are pieced to have the orange on the right.

    LOVE IT!!!!! I would never think to use those colors and I would not end up with a quilt as dynamic as yours. It's fantastic.
