    From Don-isewman---Quilt with border done last night

    I posted a picture of a quilt, I had done/no borders yet. I'm guessing about 2 weeks ago. I finally finished the quilt last night, with solid green sq's, and 4 patches, and 1 1/4" strips around the quilt, and border, with a white 3" strip around the green strip. Take care everyone, and WELCOME to the new members in this group..Name:  001.JPG

    Don. I just love your quilts. This one is no exception. Please post this again when its quilted. Can I ask what pattern you used for the blocks?

    this turned out wonderful! what a great job; the on-point 4-patch border treatment is perfect for the quilt- and the color gives it such a (home) feel. would fit in most anywhere.

    Great work! The border is just the right finishing touch. I love 4-patches and I may have to copy some of your ideas.
