I'm working on a queen sized quilt for my guest room. I'm using the "Log Cabin in a Day" book by Eleanor Burns, which helped make the process of the blocks very easy to do. I changed things up a bit as far as the borders go -- I made the first border skinnier (just thought it looked better that way), and made the next border out of strips of fabric in the opposite direction that most borders go -- not sure if it looks good or not, but it's on there to stay ;)
My issue now: I still have 9" of border on each side left to do, to make the quilt fit the bed properly. I have plenty of the light and medium blue fabric left from the quilt (I plan to do the binding in the darkest blue). But just doing strip bindings around the edges seems boring; on the other hand, I don't want to do anything to make the quilt look too fussy, either. What do you think? Should I just go with strip borders, or does anyone have any other suggestions?
