    That's very pretty.
    How do you get your seams so perfect?

    Okay then..... borders it will be, but I'll have to use something in my stash because I am not buying another piece of fabric this month. It may be yellow, black, or pink.... no not pink. LOL

    Seams perfect? Don't look to close. Some of them are right on and some are not. I do like things perfect, but I'm not there yet when it comes to seams. I have learned a few tricks to get me closer. I pressed all seams in the nine patches to the dark fabric so they were opposing when I sewed the rows together. I pinned right past the seam by a couple of threads in the direction I would be sewing, which locks the seams together.

    I think you did a good job...and I really like the fabric you used for the apples.

    I agree, it does need borders.

    Your quilt is really nice. I think a narrow 1/2" dark green together with a 2 1/2" red border would be effective :-P

    Now, do you think it need a border?
    What color are you wanting to bring out of the quilt? I always audition colors first before I actually make a decision. Same goes for how big I want the border/s.
    I learned long ago after I bought all the fabric for the quilt including the borders that after I got the top done I didn't like the borders. So now I do the top and then I choose the border after the top is complete.
