    Overwhelming Border, Part 2

    This is specifically for those of you who responded to my post re: the Blackford's Beauty top for my eldest daughter and her queen sized bed. My daughters just left here to go home. I am very happy to report that they both love the quilt and the borders, both the narrow and the wide colorful one. The daughter who is getting the quilt when it's finished thinks the bright border is exactly right to frame the quilt. Please know that, in my earlier post, the colors did not photograph well and it looks some different in reality; like the border, the blocks also are very colorful. I am attaching (again) a picture of the corner where the quilt is on the bed, one picture of the really bright cushions (not finished the binding on them, yet) and one of the backing. Neither the backing or the cushion pictures show exactly true either, but thought you might enjoy seeing them anyway.

    Thank you for looking and thank you for your opinions on the other post regarding the border.

    Oh yeah, I forgot to say that the quilt binding is the same as is on the cushions, the same fabric as the quilt cornerstones.
