    Happy with border decision on scrappy quilt...

    I recently made my first scrappy quilt, and I struggled with my border decision. I got a lot of good suggestions from "you all" and this is what I ended up doing. I am quite pleased with it.

    I am also surprised to find that I like this quilt. I didn't expect to. I thought I needed more organization than I apparently do. (I like learning new things about myself.)

    The blue border sets it off perfectly.

    You go girl! Start following your heart/instincts instead of depending on patterns and you'll get into a whole new thrilling world! You'll make a few "mistakes" (be sure they are before you take them out!) but you also make some awsome, one of a kind quilts!

    I love that.
    People who start projects and never finish them are cooler
    than people who never start projects at all.
