    I didn't use a pattern, just made a bunch of blocks and put them together, I still need to add another row to add to the width as it is only 48 wide and 88 long. any sugestions for borders would be appreciated

    I made this BOM quilt by rearranging the blocks supplied & not using them all. Maybe the flying geese would work as a border for yours.

    I love yours, not sure about putting flying geese. I have not had good luck with them.

    Flying Geese were paper pieced. This was one of my 1st quilts & 1st experience with paper piecing.

    I love it! Maybe a thinner green and then a larger tan one to connect with the colors in your quilt.

    Very easy & they come out perfect when paper piecing. I'm sure you can print out some paper-piecing patterns & look at a tutorial. They did not have the vidio tutorials when I was learning.

    Found these patterns:
