    Odd Border-Need quick response

    I have a baby quilt that I want to square up a little more. Currently it is 56 x 42 inches. I want to widen it a bit but not add much to the length. Is it ok to make a different width border? I don't have any more fabric to make another row. I could leave it like it is, but I like my quilts a little more square looking. I not really sure why I didn't think this one through better.

    I was thinking of making an inner border the same size all around and then... I just don't know.

      Are you just wanting to add a couple more inches to each side than you add to the top and bottom? I think your idea of a thin inner border and then a wider border would be fine. Maybe a thin lime green border, then an orange wider border, 3" on top and bottom, 5" on sides?

        Thanks ladies. That is what I was thinking. I just needed to see it.

                    Okay, okay, okay!! Deb has been studying Russian and I just sent her a message wishing her the best on her finals!!!

                    (On second thought, another glass of the eggnog sounds pretty okay about now.)

                      Where did you find this panel? My Granddaughter in law is expecting in July. She is wanting a giraffe theme in baby-to-be room (does not want to know sex of baby). I am making a quilt with a giraffe applique, but this is really cute, too. I think I could do two....: - }
