    I did redo the borders on this quilt. Now I really like the way it looks. I appreciated all the comments when I asked for your opinions. Thought you might like to see the end result. I should have looked at the pictures before I posted--sorry about the blurry print!

    The pink ties it all together so nicely. She will have a quilt to cherish thanks to your efforts.

    Yay! Nice improvement. Love how you still got to keep the shirt cuffs and sleeves... just put a little resting space between 'em and the rest of the quilt. Works out great. Good job.

    I like it. The border draws your eyes to the center and the beauty of the pattern. A nice memorial for dad and a gift of love for the little girl.
