    Beautiful quilt Kara. I love it! Was there a stripe fabric in the border or did you just make a bunch of borders? Thank you for sharing with us!!!

    Thank you to all who commented. Some answers to some questions:

    The borders are 5 strips put together cut on the straight of grain with mitered corners (which I LOVE).

    The pattern is an original design. I've been obsessed with the whole chain effect lately and am working on a log cabin design with similar effect for my younger son.
