    So you made your own template? Tell me more.

    Oh, and I like the contrast of the yellow border.

    Love the top, but neither of those borders. I'd try to choose something that is close to one of the fabrics already in the top. JMHO

    Heres a picture....I just kinda guessed at the measurements, I think it is a very forgiving pattern.

    I like the yellow, but maybe shop around for a different blue for the wide border.

    Looks great! I think the borders will too. You're right too, this is a very forgiving pattern, no need to be exact really, as these seams don't meet, & they all come out pinwheels, so that makes it even easier! I am working on my borders now, for my wreath design, can't wait to show it to you all! This is such a fun quilting idea!

    You don't really need any pattern, just make your own template, check out the info on the tutorials around for this, & go for it!

    I'm thinking that the yellow border is terrific, but I'd like to then see a bright blue outer, wider border.

    The top looks beautiful. You did a good job. Anxious to hear what size squares you used to start with.

    Lovely...looks like a fun project...love the idea of a yellow border (I would use the other fabric too and then maybe bind in yellow). Thanks for sharing your pretty creation.

    So pretty. I recently bought the twister ruler but haven't tried it yet. I think it will have to be moved up on my project list now and try one after Christmas.
