Playing with Borders
Oh Susannah Quilt
These three blocks were used to make this quilt top. It's time to give it a border.
What if I add an outer border with a yellow checkerboard and a blue stripe?
The trouble with finishing the pattern in the border is that the pattern didn't need finishing. I just made a busy quilt busier. It was fine the way it was.
This is simpler but it doesn't work either. It doesn't really relate to the design all that well and so it looks out of place.
This is plain and simple so it doesn't compete with the intricate quilt pattern. I think it finishes it off nicely.
