    with borders

    I put borders on today! Don't look too closely, you will see where I put too many of the same strips too close together.

    Yep, the white borders are awesome.

    I really like that. What size strips did you use?

    I agree. Love the white. You're making me rethink my contrast choice which is usually black!

    They are random strips left over from the heart string's quilt. I had put them together for the border and these are using up the left overs. I used white borders as it is for a baby. I prolly should have used a little bit wider white strips between the color but it will have to do.

    Thank you all!

    I think the narrow white strips are just right Michelle! The wider outer border sets it all off lovely! So how are you going to quilt it???
    It's quarter to me time!!

    I quilt by hand and with all the seams I may just stitch in the ditch on the color and do some kind of pattern on the white. I'd like to use a varigated thread or just white. Not sure.

    I am sure it will be gorgeous Michelle..I am too impatient to hand quilt, but I love to see everyone else who is brave to do it. I did start a quilt...maybe 4 years ago,...still waiting to be finished. Here's a picture of what I did do!

    I just remembered... I pulled out all the toe catching stitches in the centre, as I thought it looked awful compared to my border quilting...but I bet I am as bad as I was at the beginning now as I haven't done a stitch since LOL!
