    I like the layout you have it in. (I would use the blue for either another pencil thin border, or the binding)

    It's pretty

    Very nice! I like the idea of the thin blue border also.

    So.... since I cut all as squares, would I piece the middle, add the small border, then piece the brown into a border and sew on?

    If you can't find the exact fabric, I've got a fair amount of another blue from the Pure collection that match wonderfully with the fabrics you are using. I'd be glad to part with enough for your binding. Just send me an PM if you need it. I'm just finishing up my second project from this material and am ready to move on to something with a little more color.

    I really like it. The thin border then the brown is a great idea.

    I like it too. I like the small border idea also and it would even be an idea to put a flange to seperate the blocks with the border. Even solid white or the blue. Or just do the binding in the solid blue or color to match.

    Perfect layout. When I look at it I see 4 hearts around the center blue square and the blue fabric has hearts. The words are joy, etc. Just an all around nice quilt.

    I didnt even see that! :) I was thinking about appliquing a square of the words in the very center... maybe I will cut a heart out of the words and applique it in the center! :)
