    Double Delight mystery quilt done!

    Continued from posts: Anyone made Bonnie Hunter's Double Delight quilt?

    and: Update with pic: Bonnie Hunter's Double Delight

    I finished the quilt top. I love the pattern but after making this big size quilt with so many small pieces I think I'm going to be making big block quilts for a long time. It was tedious to press all those seams. I will layer it tomorrow and do simple fmq, enough to put binding on. I will do more quilting after the guild challenge display at a local quilt show.

    I started with a narrow cheddar border around it but took it out. I just didn't like the look of double borders.

    Wow. That turned out beautiful. I like it better without the cheddar border, too.

    That quilt is gorgeous! I understand about the tedious small blocks but big blocks have drawbacks too. Can't hide quilting mistakes in the big blocks so much, lol.

    Normally I would like the inner border, but in this case I think you're right to take it out. The overall effect of the blue border is to make the center seem to float. It's very beautiful.

    Your quilt is beautiful. I kinda liked the cheddar border. But, it looks great without it too. It might have been too much after awhile.
    Be the best that you can be at everything you do.
