I hope I can stay on the border express and do more of them this month. I have so many tops waiting for border decisions.
I have been waiting to put the border on this one since Sept. 2011. I wasn't sure I liked the way the points were cut off of the dark sashing around the diamonds when I first tried this border. My 2 friends and I decided it did look OK though so I sewed it on.
This one in Kaffe's book, "Simple Shapes, Spectacular Quilts" didn't have a border.
He also used different fabrics in all of the outside half diamonds and I used all the same fabric. My photo of this page in the book doesn't show the beauty of his quilt. It is really brighter than this photo.
