    and here it is. I tried something new...adding piping to the quilt as a thin border vs. just the fabric. I'm not really sure it worked well for me and I might take it apart. I haven't pressed it yet, so I'm sure that will help. I found a brick to use as binding and the back will be the exact same fabric as the outer border.

    Very Pretty! I love those fabrics! I tried the piping thing on some pillow shams once and wasnt real happy either. I am sure it was just something I was doing wrong because It looks great on yours and others I have seen!

    The piping is a definite keeper. It frames the quilt beautifully. You might want to check out Susan Cleveland's site. I think she is the 'queen of piping.

    I love this quilt. It has a real serenity about it, without being boring. The piping definitely sets it off beautifully.

    Do you need an address for it's new home?! LOL

    That turned out gorgeous, sandpat! The piping does set it off beautifully; if you can't live with it, you could always replace it with a folded border in a similar color. Either way, great job :thumbup:
