    Default Re: Should I add a border?

    I really don't want a border but I need one to make the size I want. Like many of you, I thought the modern design was perfect without a border and that a border would detract from the design. I just don't have enough browns and lights to make the size I want and, being on a tight budget, I didn't want to go shopping for more. I thought I might have enough of some stash fabric that would complement the browns/lights. Maybe I should just put it aside and wait until I can get more browns. Hate to do that as I am enjoying the process. The blocks are going together so quickly and I like the design.

    I would lay the quilt down and lay different
    fabrics along the edges so it appears to have
    a border. Try different fabrics and different
    widths. Take pictures of each option.
    View your pictures. You will be able to
    choose which option you like best.
    You must have been typing the same time as I was!
    Good idea. I will do that. If I don't find something suitable, I will just have to put this project aside for now. I like this one too much to just 'make-do' with a less than desirable choice.
