I've put the borders on my Year Quilt but I don't know whether it needs something more. Originally I had thought of wide black borders but it seemed too overpowering, so in a fit of indecision I put on a 2 1/2 inch border as a starting point. Now I'm wondering if it can stay like this, or whether it needs something else. And if so what?

  3. I also love it just as it is! How lovely it is.

  4. I have just been revisiting your past blogs, & admiring Tabitha, & also the lovely dog? Name? Your work is lovely!

  5. I think the border is the perfect size - it sets off the brilliant colours perfectly - it's a lovely quilt.
