  • Well dang. I made it to small.

    I made it to small.
    Sooooooo....... Hubby and I agree it needs to be 8" bigger all the way around.

    The picture was taken before I added a 3" border in white.
    Options?

    I am thinking I want to add 8" of the white. ....yes that would mean the white border has a white border attached..... Not ideal.

    Maybe a 2" border of the dark blue then 6" of the white?

    I could add another row of blocks but think it would look odd.

    I could rip the borders off and add blocks but really don't want to do that unless it's the best option.

    I plan to bind it in the dark blue.

    Help me decide what to do.

    I like your idea of 2" blue, 6' white and then bind with blue.

      I agree, blue border first, then the wider white one with blue binding.

        Maybe an narrow inner border of blue, then blocks and bind in blue.

          I concur with this too.

              I think you'll be happy with the narrow blue then wider white.

                Pretty quilt! Just another thought.....what about a piano key border with your two blue fabrics after a white border.

                  I agree with the others who think narrow blue and then white. That's a real pretty quilt!

                    I thought about a piano key but don't want to overpower the blocks.

                    That and I am out of the lighter blue.....

                      It's beautiful now, it's going to be even better when you're done with your borders.

                        The same thing happened to me and I added a 2 inch border then the additional border which if I remember correctly was a six inch border.

                            I have one ahead of fixing this one.
                            It's definitely not a fun thing finding it's to small.
                            I saw yours Sandy. Its stunning! I know you'll get through it.

                              Ok..... Finally getting to this quilt.
                              I still need to add the last white border.
                              I do like the blue border though. It's coming along.....slowly.
