YAY! All of your good advice paid off…I knew I was asking the right people.
Here is my Sort-Of-Splendid-Sampler top finished. It is amazing to me what a difference the borders made in this case. It is even more obvious when you look at the “before” and “after” pictures side by side.
Even though the colors and prints aren’t what I normally choose, I really love the finish. And the size is better, too: 65″ x 77″.
Over the past year many of my quilts have been out of my former comfort zone–either the pattern or the colors or something. But, you know what, I am feeling more energized and interested in quilting than ever. Hmmm…maybe they have something to do with each other. 🙂
