    Borders okay?

    A customer asked me to finished this quilt started by her mother many years ago. I need to add borders to the top her mother made and then hand quilt it. She did not want me to go with blues. Do you think these will be okay for borders and binding? I wanted to keep the scrappy and old look. (Ignore the white. It's just covering up the rest of the binding fabric.)

    I like that - the green is a nice border and I like the binding darker. I think it works really well!

    When Thomas Edison invented the light bulb, he tried over 2000 experiments before he got it to work. A young reporter asked him how it felt to fail so many times. He said, "I never failed once. I invented the light bulb. It just happened to be a 2000 step process."
