    Modern Baltimore Album Quilt from BOM here

    This is my version of the QB online Block of the Month Baltimore Album quilt. Thanks to Peg for getting us all the blocks and only letting Hurricane Irene just slow her down. Now to finish this I need to put a 5"-6" border on this and then decorate with ???? More flowers? Swag Border?? I am really lost here. Any suggestions? Thanks for looking...

    There is no such thing as ugly fabric...just cut it smaller!

    The entire quilt is batiks from my stash with raw edge applique, only had to buy the background fabric. Thank you for the compliment!

    Beautiful quilt. Appliqued border with flowers and vines would be spectacular.

    Love the border and sashing fabric. If adding another border I'm not sure what you would use next-maybe a lilac? Great job so far Congratulations

    Very nice, I really love this one. IMHO I think a ribbon border would look nice.

    Beautiful! Wait until your border is sewn on and let it talk to you. You may decide to just do a vine in the top and bottom corners, or add some flowers, etc.

    Don't you feel on top of the game when you have enough stash to make such a beautiful, gorgeous, magnificant quilt and not spend a ton of money. Great job by the way.

    Gorgeous, great job. I think a dark border would set it off nicely.
