    Double Delight mystery quilt done!

    Continued from posts: http://www.quiltingboard.com/main-f1...t-t198468.html

    and: http://www.quiltingboard.com/main-f1...t-t199719.html

    I finished the quilt top. I love the pattern but after making this big size quilt with so many small pieces I think I'm going to be making big block quilts for a long time. It was tedious to press all those seams. I will layer it tomorrow and do simple fmq, enough to put binding on. I will do more quilting after the guild challenge display at a local quilt show.

    I started with a narrow cheddar border around it but took it out. I just didn't like the look of double borders.

    Wow. That turned out beautiful. I like it better without the cheddar border, too.

    That quilt is gorgeous! I understand about the tedious small blocks but big blocks have drawbacks too. Can't hide quilting mistakes in the big blocks so much, lol.

    Normally I would like the inner border, but in this case I think you're right to take it out. The overall effect of the blue border is to make the center seem to float. It's very beautiful.

    Your quilt is beautiful. I kinda liked the cheddar border. But, it looks great without it too. It might have been too much after awhile.

    Your quilt is wonderful - I, too, like it much better without the 2nd border.

    Beautiful work! I really like the cheddar border but that's just my opinion.

    I started on the quilt Aug 23. It went together faster then I thought. I didn't work on it every day so it is a very doable quilt to have made in a few weeks.
    Got fabric?

    That came out really nice! It sure is a lot of small pieces but it looks like it was worth it
