    Default quilt top finished that is/was "outside my comfort zone"

    I just put the borders on a quilt that is/was "outside my comfort zone." Not because it was difficult but because of all the colors in it. The pattern is Basket from a book called Scrap Basket Sensations by Kim Brackett.

    I want to thank all of you who helped me figure out a way that it would look good to me. Scrappy just seems to be really hard for my brain to accept. But the final quilt is beautiful and I love it. It will be awhile before I try another scrappy though.... I will go back to something more comfortable, like a Bargello.

    Here is how it looks now.

    Well, I didn't mean it was difficult. It wasn't. It was difficult for me because there were just too many colors for me to enjoy. It isn't 9 patches though.

    Try to think of a fresh box of crayons - they all look wonderful and can't wait to be used. Your lovely quilt strikes me the same way! I love the way the outer border color pulls out the purples in the blocks. It looks great!

    It's beautiful. By the pattern name, it was not at all what I expected to see. Love the pattern by the way. May have to add this to my ever growing list of must due.

    It's terrific!! You did a beautiful job. I saw an earlier picture when it was in progress. The border you chose is perfect. So glad you showed us.

    Looks great! Glad you went with the white, and I like the added borders! Glad you tried this pattern, I will make it again too.
