I was kind of "eh" about this top when I finished it several months ago - I mean I like the Ric Rack pattern by Missouri star but wasn't thrilled with how it came out with the novelty fabrics.
Fast forward 12 months - I'm adding borders to several tops and getting them quilted. And wow, adding the border really sets it off. I think it's one of my favorites now.
Yes, the border just dresses it up quite nicely.
It is amazing how a nice border treatment can change the look of a quilt.
Another great quilt! It looks familiar, did you do one like it some time ago? I know I used it as inspiration to make one for myself. The border is lovely and really finishes it off.
yes, it's the same quilt. I pieced it last summer then hung it in the closet. I decided to donate some of my I spy quilts to our "country store" at our upcoming guild quilt show in Sept. But that meant I had to finish some of them. When I meant to look in that closet I realized I hadn't put borders on any of them (there were about a dozen). Which got me started putting on borders. I had thought I would donate this one, but I liked it too much once I added the borders. I did finish 8 of them, but am only donating 4 (and only if they sell, they promised they'd give them back if they didn't sell). the other 4 I'm keeping for future gifts. I've posted pictures of the tops here but haven't done a blog post for any of them yet. Maybe this weekend.
