    I wanted to make this for my king size bed but was not sure about adding more boarders. Any suggestions/comments would be appreciated. I would also like to thank Jenny for all the great tutorials, I have learned a lot and am not afraid of trying something new now.

    Love it! Just keep adding borders til it fits! I only make mine to cover the mattress, and use a bedskirt. Is that what you are going to do?

    This is really very pretty! What is the name of the fabric line of the jelly roll that you used. It is so pretty!!
    Finished is way better than perfect!

    Add as many borders as you need. Make the first one like 3" followed by a larger one to frame it all. It is after all 'your' quilt. I love the colors.

    What a beautiful quilt! The batiks really look wonderful all together.
    I would have to agree with the others - just keep adding borders to make it the size you want

    Thanks for all the replies. I think I will just keep on adding boarders until I get the size I want. I appreciate all the comments.

    I am sorry. I bought this fabric about 3 years ago and I do not remember the name of it. I just loved the batik.

    If you could get the same type of fabric, I think a piano key border would look nice.
