    Border for Merry Little Christmas???

    I think this will be my border for the Merry Little Christmas quilt? The snowmen will be in the four corners?? I'm thinking of adding a border of the green first. Thanks for looking.

    How pretty! Love the candy cane fabric too.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    Very nice! I like your quilt!!
    What is it about today and Christmas?? The radio station I was listening to played Christmas music at times throughout the day for you to call in for a prize, someone posted on facebook they were watching Christmas movies and now the first thread I click on is Christmas! Guess I better start making my list and checking it twice!

    I think the inner dark green border would frame the quilt kind of like the center panel is framed; is a very jolly, happy quilt. nicely done

    Gorgeous!! The green border and then what you had shown would be lovely, especially with the snowman in the corners. Do you have a red, green & white stripe you can use for the binding? Its a lovely quilt! I haven't embroidered much in years, but looking at your quilt makes me want to do one.....
