    Oh my---just beautiful. I see a darker outside border--next to a narrower light one ---to "hold it all in" --- just my thought.

    That is exactly what I did and I do like the looks of the darker outer border. I left the yellow border 4" so it still makes a statement.
    Thanks to everyone for your lovely comments. I really am happy with how it turned out, in spite of the tears and ripping that were a part of making it happen!
    God Bless,

    Love, love your top....it looks fantastic... I like the light border but I personally think it needs a dark for binding to finish...
    Could you share the name of the pattern... looked and can't find on web...
    Thanks for sharing...

    Very pretty! I think I'd have added a narrow black border before adding the lighter border, but, as Peggy suggested, it would make a nice area for the LAQ to do something special, so maybe bind it in black to pick up the black in the background fabric?
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)
