    Bargello! but not enjoying!!!

    DH and I are working on this. Not enjoying it. Closest thing to divorce over quilt!!! We've spent a couple of weeks trying to decide borders. Think we have an idea now. Will post pics when finished!!

    That's really pretty! Do you need a border? Just a thought......I don't know that I'd put one on.

    No border - it would take away from the beauty!

    Awesome, beautiful quilt! Too bad you are not enjoying it, but you will probably really enjoy it when it is done.

    Like your quilt. I am with some of the others that suggest you just bind it. Putting a border on it would detract from the middle.

    Fantastic quilt-love the colors!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    You are doing a fantastic job and how lucky you are to have a husband that you work with.

    awesome. Well it is great. And don't get a divorce over this. He might have to help you make a different quilt lol

    Unfortunately its not big enough for my friend who wants it. So whave to add borders and we don't have enough fabric to make more of the pattern. I think you will like what we have in mind!!!

    What a beautiful quilt - I'm sure if you choose the fabrics in this quilt, you will be able to agree on a nice border.
