    I couldn't wait to get the borders on, it's funny how i go from one quilt back to another then back to finish up another.....I'm so disheveled.....lol

    I added borders to my quilt, they are scrappy just like the quilt, one cream border and then a scrappy one.

    Hope you like

    Very nice! I like the white frames, too. It makes them stand out nicely. I like leaving the pockets on, too.

    Love your quilt....did you use a pattern or make it up yourself? If you used a pattern, what's the name of it?

    The patter was found in the February 2009 issue of Quick Quilts, it's called Modern Spirit in Squares.

    Oh yes, that is a great border for this quilt top. I remember you posted it before. It is one of my favorite scrap quilts that I have ever seen
