    Glad you're able to change it. I've found that if I don't like it before it's quilted, I won't like it after it's quilted either!

    I understand what you are saying about advice from a well-meaning hubby......sometimes I want to smack this one.....like, I aw sewing away, he comes up, looks over my shoulder and tells me that the borders are not quite even, on the sides................that is NOT what I wanted to hear from him, or anybody else, for that matter.......it is NOT going before a judge, NOT going to a show, NOT going anywhere that anyone will really care........so DONT tell me things like that, I dont wanta hear it............

It ends up looking like a "design decision" and not that I've run out of border fabric.
    Beautiful quilt and excellent idea.
