    Border Options

    This isn't what I was hoping for, I had a pieced border to put on the top & bottom. But, it's not going to work out. Here's what I'm going to do instead. Border options #1 or #2?

    I like the print next to the center. But I also like the idea of the print as the outside border. What about three borders. Something like two inches of the print, one inch of the plain, then four inches of the print. These figures are just for the sake of explanation. You'd adjust them to fit your own taste and needs for size and fabric amounts available.

    T is it True? H is it Helpful? I is it Inspiring? N is it Necessary? K is it Kind?

    I like option #2. It breaks up all the gold. But the choice is really yours, So which one is your heart telling you to go with?

    I like option one with the yellow border being a little more on the narrow side. The leaves are awesome.
    Home is where the heart is, and a few scrappy quilts.

    I also like option 1, but both would work. But I'm curious - why is the pieced border not going to work out?
