    There they are all playing nicely together. The size before borders is 57 x 72. Can you guess what the strip block on the bottom left is?

    This next picture is the possible border. Do I want the burgundy next to the quilt then the chicken wire then the burgundy for the binding or do I want the chicken wire next to the quilt and then a thin burgundy border and binding.
    I only picked the burgundy because it is the color of the wire in the chicken wire print. Maybe I don't want the burgundy?

    If you have any other ideas for a border and binding I'd love to hear them!
    :-D

    I'd put the burgundy before the chicken wire.

    Overall, that is one CUTEEEEEEE quilt! :) Love it!

    I like the thin burgandy border first-it "frames" the inner part of the quilt. Either way, your quilt is so cute-you did a great job on it.

    Oh Geez. I totally wanted to be in this swap. Wish I had have! It's turning out beautiful! I agree about the burgandy next to the center, then the wire. :) Show piccies when it's done! :)

    I think the burgandy border and then the chicken wire looks best.

    Maybe a thin strip of black to start the border, then chicken wire then burgandy? I really like your chickens, a very happy quilt!! :-D
