Finally Pieced!

Life got in the way of getting this quilt pieced but thank heaven it is finally done! I had to wait on the fabric for the border and binding and finally finished putting on the flowers today. Now all I have to do is get it quilted and hopefully will work on that when I finish the 4 quilts I have to do for friends. I want to thank everyone for their thoughts on this quilt and the name I drew for the FQ's is...."Phyllis in Minnesota". Please send me your address Phyllis and I will get the FQ's sent out right away. My next project is painting my quilting studio and hopefully will start on that soon, the paint will be here tomorrow and I am so excited about getting rid of these white walls in here. I love color and so color it will be soon!! Hope you all are having a quilty day!

To Border Or Not To Border??

I finished my "Hip To Be Blush" quilt, actually it is a pattern from Kim Brackett's book "Scrap-Basket Surprises" but I thought since I used my Blush FQ stack it would be more appropriate.
My dilema is that I think it might need a solid border around it. Kim's quilt looks great without one but I think this one just might. I think maybe a solid border with some applique flowers would do the trick! I have some pretty FQ's for someone who's idea I will use if you would like to suggest what "you" think would look the best! Friday will be the day I make my decision for a finish and draw for the FQ"s. Have a great day and stay warm!!
