    Just off the frame

    Just wanted to share my latest, just took it off the frame. Simple uneven 9 patch in sunset colors. Quilted with simple meander and high loft batting. The last border is wider at the top and bottom as I needed to add a little more length. Will do the binding tomorrow as soon as I decide what color to use. Suggestions are welcome. Took the pic from my back porch, you can see the river in my back yard.

    Love the colors in your quilt. I haven't used high loft batting in a long time... I may have to get some as I like the look of yours. I think you should bind it in the same fabric as your border.

    beautiful quilt! Great scenery, too. I would bind it sitting out side so I could enjoy it.

    If the outer border is that great purple I would pick a red/orange (not an orange/red) to go next to it. They will dance well together in this sunset.
    love the quilt.

    Very nice quilt with very pretty colors! And you really are "On the River"...lol. I think it would be pretty to use the orange as binding to frame the purple.

    It is early morning and your quilt makes me very happy. The colors are terrific! Green is the only color to go with this quilt for binding. Can I make one like yours? I will try this winter when I need sunshine. Thanks for posting.
