    here are 4 quilts that I have gotten done in the past few weeks, trying to clean up old projects and get ready for Christmas. The last one on the homemade design wall, I am still considering if it needs another border--any help would be appreciated. It is for my grandson so I want it to be really colorful.

    Gorgious Christmas quilts. How about a red white and green piano key border for your Grandsons quilt.

    What you have on the design board works great. Just make the red border a little more narrow like you did on one of the previous quilts. They all look great.
