Top and bottom borders.........

I chose a fabric for the top and bottom borders of this quilt, cut them and sewed them on and also cut the binding strips from the same fabric.  I chose the backing, a 60" wide fabric hand dyed by Melody Johnson about 15-20 years ago.  Since my only Christmas party is on the 21st I hope to do some finishing of quilts in the last 10 days of the year.  I think this will be one of them.

I really like this - very nice! Are there side borders, too, or just top and bottom?

The days are ticking down to a precious few, but I'm almost finished. Another beautiful quilt, Wanda, heading toward the finish line for 2014. Hopefully you will display them all on the blog, so we can see them. Looking forward to seeing the sun tomorrow...all this gloominess puts a damper on my enthusiasm. Have a great day!

I love the comment made that this quilt was sunshine for her. That's a perfect way to describe the warmth of this quilt. I love the border fabric. If it's not too much of a bother, I would love to see the back sometime.

I have considered adding borders to only the top and bottom OR only the sides. I don't know why I haven't done it.

Bright and beautiful, will you add a border to the sides too? some of the lines on the border print look like the print out of an ECG for your heart!!! Jean.
