that is a beautiful quilt.. if it hangs on the bed where you want it to it is done. I like miine to hang down enough to cover and box springs so I would make it bigger.

IMHO I think your gorgeous creation should be a little larger, depending on the mattress and your daughter's future bed size. Right now the quilt will maybe just barely cover the sides of a 7"-thick double mattress. If your daughter has a mattress any thicker than 7 inches, buys a pillow top mattress set down the road, or goes into a queen set later, your quilt will be way too small and might be relegated to a cupboard.

I agree. I've loved seeing this one come together, it is just stunning!

Thank you everyone, you are all so generous and kind. I like the idea of a slim border and then a little larger one. That means I'm going to need more fabric since all I have in black is the JR strips.

I think I can handle doing that rather than a 4-patch border.
