Perhaps in your opinion .......

It turned out very nice! and it's interesting to see the change in the grass and garden...it's greened-up a bit. What is that ground cover??? Does not look like grass. :)

You're right! We over seeded with Clover so it stays green even when the grass goes brown. Mind you we've had almost a week of rain here.

Please tell me how you added to a finished quilt. I have the same problem but don't really know where to start undoing. How did you do it? Thanks. Beautiful quilt, BTW!

Nice quilt.

Wow major kudos to you for taking that on! I don't think I would have but I love the results you got. Adding the border of the original fabric really brightened up the center. It almost doesn't look like the same quilt.

Thanks for the explanation of how you did this project. It looks like a totally different quilt now that the blue isn't on the outside edge. You did a great job on a lovely quilt.

MaryK explained it very well in her post with the picture.

I had to do something similar. NO FUN! I think you did better than I did.
