    bright quilt top

    I just put the borders on this quilt top. It is bright, but I have decided I like it. I made the center part back in January and decided I didn't like it, it was just too bright. But I was looking for something different to do on this hot day, and just decided to add borders and see what happened. I had so many border choices that it was difficult, but I think I make the right decisions with each of them. See what you think.

    Thanks for the positive comments. I am just admiring it here on my design wall. I have some fabric selected for the back, so this UFO will be finished in no time! (It is my only UFO...then I will start something brand new!!)
