Yesterday I posted pictures of the finished blocks for the melon patch quilt.
Teddy and I decided to add a border to make it a better size.
It was 60″ x80′
Here it is after I placed the side borders .
I know that red looks like plain dots but it really has more of a pattern
To get the proportions I wanted I made the top and bottom border narrower
It is Now 80″ x 88″
I think Teddy likes it
It really looks a lot better once I erase the background.
Now it is time to find a backing. I will look for something to match all the fabrics
Or maybe I will just use white 🙂
