    Default Quatrefoil Christmas needs border

    I have finished the xmas quatrefoil quilt, and just searching for a border. At first I was going to add floral dark, but now I am looking with a black with small gold stars. There is an ivory and red inner border.

    This was made from 14 FQs I won at guild, plus scraps and yardage from my stash.

    Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

    Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.

    This is truly a beautiful quilt... I made a memory quilt in this pattern... it goes together nicely.. LOVE you FQ's color choices... especially with the white.. you will know the border when it "hits" you) GB

    Quatrefoil is on my Bucket List, too. I like the idea of the black/star outer border. I think you have jut enough black in the blocks to make it all pop. It's going to be Gorgeous!

    I love it! I've made that pattern before, I had to go look up what I'd done with it because it's one that left the house. It's beautiful Suzanne.

    Wow Suzanne! It's beautiful! Love the idea of the black and gold border too! I've made one of these.....sewn, but not quilted.....I like yours better! Don't Canadians celebrate Christmas in July? Thought so, I can use it in December! A shared quilt.....LOL (just kidding)

    It's just stunning!
