    Borders are on Cottage Romance

    Thank you everyone for your suggestions. Glad I bordered this quilt - think once it is quilted I am going to love it. Each corner has the same square but in different colors and different placement. Cannot get the whole thing in the picture.

    Now, I need to get the layers together and quilt it. Thanks again.

    Forgot to say I am going to try and do a scalloped border as was suggested. I think it would suit this top perfectly. Thanks to whoever (sorry don't remember name) suggested it.

    I'm glad you decided to add the borders, too! =) It definitely added that final touch. I can't wait to see it finished, AND with the scalloped edges!
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    I think it looks great with the borders. It's a very lovely quilt and I love the name of it. TY for sharing again after putting the borders on.

    That's what my very 1st quilt teacher taught us... to think about it like a picture & to "frame" it accordingly. I love the way these borders turned out! Of course, I have a serious "thing" about this quilt anyway... pink & green? Shabby chic? That's right in my wheelhouse! This is gorgeous & I love, love, love it!!!

    Is there a pattern for this quilt? I like how you used some white squares - they would be perfect for some delicate embroidery. I have been looking for a pattern where I could just 'scatter' some redwork around the quilt. Your quilt is very pretty.

    The pattern is in the book Scrappy Quilts by Better Homes and Gardens.
    Thanks everyone for looking and your kind comments.
