Borders next

I finished piecing the top

It looked like this before I added the pieces on the edge

I used the same size pieces on the edge as in the center and then cut them off

Right now it is 64″ x 80″ and I plan to add a border.   I was thinking gray but I had some green right next to me so I put it next to the top.

I like it.   I also have plenty of the print left so I might add a triple border…gray, and green and print….check back to see the finished top next time.

 

Happy quilting

    It is turning out so beautifully! Before you put it together I really didn’t like the colors but now I see that it is stunning!

    I have gotten behind on my blog reading. But wanted to say the fabric you picked to put the circular blocks together is just perfect. You have done a wonderful job turning those blocks into a quilt top. Look at all the design in this top that you did not see before with just the blocks! I look forward to seeing what you do with the borders.
