Borders Finished. :)


Well, here's the strip twist quilt, with borders! Since the quilt has no pinks, and not many pastels, except a couple of yellows and a blue, I decided this was going to eventually be for a brother or nephew. I picked a darkish olive green tone, with little teeny stars, to border it with. This was one of the fabrics I got from the Hancock's going out of business sale on Friday. It was nice to have a choice of several border fabrics to choose from!

I thought at first glance that there was some kind of weird fade pattern to the fabric, till I looked harder and saw that it was the strong backlight from the setting sun that put the vertical stripes on the border... lol




Libby puts her shed-of-approval on it too. :)

I love your stripped twist quilt! And the color of your border is awesome! But then those more muted/muddy greens are my favorite! The pieced border is a great addition also! OK - back to cathcing up!

Love the quilt! I think the border color is perfect. Thanks for visiting my blog. To answer your question about the block: Yes, they hand out the pattern and we had to use yellow centers, spring flowers colors, and a brown-ish basket. That way they all look generally the same.

Looks terrific. And that is a very traditional way to make pieced borders fit. It's never evident unless one gets out a tape measure - and no one should be doing that!
