Borders



I have the new brown border sewn on. I used the same fabric as I will put on the back. We bought enough for all three quilts and there was quite a wide piece left over on the side of the Mocha quilt. It looked fine as a darker border. The piano key border is not sewn together completely but I do like the looks of it. I'll do the binding in the same brown as the inner border.

This looks so effective with the darker inner border

Looks great! That dark brown was a good idea.

The addition of the dark brown inner border sets it off nicely and a good idea for the binding. Excellent!

Looking good! I usually do the dark inner borders too, as they just frame the quilt body so well.

Ooooo wow looky-looky!!! Looks great Joyce! I love pinks and browns... on my to do list, but it will most likely be "old" style fabrics by the time I get to it!
Happy stitchings!

Far out Joyce! You are amazingly productive. Love the mocha quilt and pillow shams and this is beautiful too. Well done!
