    God, Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
    The stash to make a quilt to help me cope,
    A quilt to give to comfort those I love in times of hurt, fear and uncertainty.
    And the courage to keep on sewing when life itself seems held together by a single thread of hope.

    that is just so pretty. If you do another border I think keep it the light blue and bind it in that dark blue

    Annika If you do a border I would do the darker navy or a white or whatever the background color is on the clocks. That way it will make your layout pop and not just blend in. But that is just my humble opinion. kellie

    Okay, I have to pop in - I'd add a very narrow border of the dark blue and then another light blue - and bind with the light blue, too. Love it! I think this is one of my favorites that you've made recently. You have truly finished a whole lot of tops this year.

    I would put a white border on and bind it in the dark blue you used in the top. The white will complement the white in the clocks, and make the quilt top pop. I think your quilt is beautiful. Good job!

    Very pretty! Sandy has the right idea or if you decide not to add another border, just bind it in the dark blue.
