    Suprisingly red by Jacqueline de Jonge

    I just finished this quilt. I enlarged it from a wall hanging to a king size. I now have to quilt it. Thanks for all your suggestions on what borders to use, so what do you think?

    I think it came out PERFECT!!! Sometimes when quilters want to make a quilt bigger , it does not look like it was part of the quilt ,or looks like an "addition" . Yours is perfect. My compliments , I know this was quite a project. Do take a bow ! and reward yourself .. as you truly earned it!

    What a beautiful quilt!!!!! I can only envy and admire the work of your group who use patterns and such beautiful colors for your quilts. I hove no patience with cutting and planning such tops. I make mostly what I call "random" quilts, starting with a picture or even just a piece of material working my way through and building on an idea!! And I am a coward about big quilts. My largest was a standard bed size made years ago, which I still marvel over. I have made a twin-sized quilt for my grandson and lots of lap quilts which I enjoy making. Most of all, I do love the doll quilts.
    Enjoyed looking at your masterpiece!
    Enjoy your life, it's the only one you have!
