    I had a customer with a 24 by 100 Cathedral Windows quilt done by her Great Grandmother but she wanted to use it on her full bed. So I added borders, she didn't want any more blocks to take away from the center blocks. So just added borders, quilted it and did a scalloped binding. Thanks for taking a look. :D

    1/4 of the quilt.

    Thanks my azalias are just beautiful now. My weeping cherries are done blooming, my pink magnolia is about done, my red bud is blooming and so are my dogwoods. The bradford pear is done early around here. I love the way spring comes in stages!!!!

    The Quilt is beautiful and love the way you have arranged it with flowers in background.

    It is beautiful! How did you add the borders? I have a section large as a twin bed, but want to add border. Do I just sew the border fabric with 1/4" seam.
    Says you quilted it. Does that mean you quilted the borders? My quilt is quilted as I go so the back is has as many hand stitches as the front.
    What a treasure your customer will have to remember herr great grandmother.

    I love the scalloped binding. Just a marvelous treasure of a quilt!!!
