Put a border on it!


Remember this?

I just felt like something was missing . . . couldn't quite put my finger on it.


Played with fabric, doodled on my sketch pad, and then decided the simple things are often the best!


Just a simple whack-some-layer-cake-squares-in-half border!


Whatcha think?



Better?

Here are some closeups so you can see the pretty Hoffman batiks:


Love these Sparrow colorway fabrics!


Anyway, I'm pretty happy with it. It's sandwiched and basted and I'm hand-quilting like mad, trying to get it ready for Christmas!

Wish me luck! (Grin)

Love,
