    I am doing this quilt as a wedding gift for my cousin. (throw/wallhanging size)

    This is the center. I am trying to deicide on the next border, I am thinking Red with white applique words (love, cherish etc..) and then finishing with a white border with celtic work as the final border.

    Or should that be reversed any suggestions greatly appreciated.

    Very pretty! May I suggest a red flange to frame this BEFORE the red and white border, then proceed. A tiny frame around this makes certain that everyone knows this is the center of attention.

    I would suggest a deeper maroon color for the boarder or if you know what colors she is using for her wedding that would be really nice.

    I love the idea of a flange around the center before any borders.

    It is using Bias strips, my first try at this method, much easier than it looks

    It's beautiful! I would see how the words would look around the pattern before cutting them. It may lessen the elegant look. A beautiful script letting would work.

    OK I am a new quilter, I love the idea of a flange but have never done one, so I have a few questions. Does the flange lay inward (on top of the center peice) or point out toward the border? next how wide do you suggest? (the bias strips are 1/4" and 3/8" not sure if that helps). But I like the idea of a flange. Doing a Red flange do you still do a red border or would you move into a white border? So many questions
