    This was made from a pack of 8 fat quarters I bought at my LQS. I didn't have anything to do, so I decided to make a quilt out of it. The problem is that's it's too small for an adult-sized quilt. Right now it's 36x44. I have a bolt of plain red and a bolt of plain white, and I can always go back to the LQS for more fabric. Any suggestions on what I can do with the borders to enlarge this quilt a little more? And what do you think about Prairie Points? Too busy????

    I would go thin white and then a 6' red..

    I really like it! I would then bind it in red.

    Good Luck.. really great work!

    If you added two broaders, one 2" and one 3" that would add 10" to the length and width.

    Or.... add three broaders. Do red, white and red again. Maybe 3", 2", 3" or 2", 1", 2".

    I have no opinion or suggestion on the Prairie Points.

    I too think thin red or white and the opposite colour a broader strip.

    I like the white then wider red border and like the idea of a block in the corner. It is a very pretty quilt. Be sure to show us the results.
