    Here is a pic of my columbine quilt. I had the purple borders on, but was not really happy with the effect so I changed them to the multicolored green. I hope it's a better change. I like it better, but am not too sure, what do you think?? Here's a pic of the before and after.

    Very nice and I like the change. The new border looks much better. Who would have thought the difference it would make?

    when I first looked quickly I thought you had added a brown border & thought how can she think that is better, it's so dark-

    Fixed my eyeballs & second glance showed me the printed fabric. The colors blend so well with the flowers in your windows - it's a keeper.
