If you’ve been reading the blog you know that I am working on Bonnie Hunter’s Garden Party quilt. It was featured in a Quiltmaker magazine. I loved the quilt the second I saw it..but wanted to make it mine…so I got rid of the boarder and made MANY-MANY-MANY more blocks.
I almost have it together…just one more seam. I can’t remember how big it is now…I measured once then put the tape measure away and frankly I’m feeling too lazy to go back to the garage to get the tape measure to measure again. I know it’s close to 92″ x 92″…it’s growing into a monster!
My debate now is … Do I just straighten the edges of it and be done? Do I just add a thin 2″ border around the outside of red? I don’t think there is a wrong option but hoping one might just be a little better than the other.
I was hoping to stick with this quilt and not set it aside again but I am stopping everything soon and finishing a quilt I have started for my niece’s wedding at the end of the month.
I do know one thing for sure…This quilt is mine and will be staying at my house. I just can’t give a quilt that has a bizzillion 5″ blocks in it away…
Chime in with some advice on a little narrow border or not…please?!
