    Default 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 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.....
