    Default Quilt With Added Border

    A couple of weeks ago I was looking for some Bonnie & Camille fabric to add a border to a quilt. I couldn't find what I was looking for so I went with a navy blender. I used the quilt as you go method and it turned out ok. As they say "if you can't see it from a galloping horse..."

    My daughter is happy she can continue to use her wedding quilt on the new king size bed and I'm honored she loves the quilt enough to not put it in a closet to never see again.

    Or that she never let it come out the bag you gave it to her in. My sister did that with the one from her MIL, hand quilted and hand pieced. Uggg made me mad when she showed it to me. Your quilt is beautiful and you can't tell that it has been re-designed. You did a great job.

    The border looks like it was always there, you did a great job with fabric selection. It's a really pretty quilt.

    It turned out so beautifully, Robin! I agree, it is great that your daughter will still be using it on her bed!
