I love the quilt pattern, and you know I love Kaffe Fassett fabrics. I like quilts without borders sometimes because the pattern is strong enough. If it needs to be bigger and you want to put on a border I would use a "quieter" print of Kaffe's and maybe in the pink or gold tones.


Hi Jeri! Love the quilt. Suck is a good word for what you described. I use it when I am describing getting old! LOL


The green border seems to fight with the quilt - I would try a narrow solid (like the ribbon color ) or small dotted border then a wide KF fabric in a hot color


I'm so glad you said you like it almost as well without borders. I'd LOVE to see it without borders. But I rarely do borders, so I might be a little biased. I really just don't like that look, I guess. If you feel it needs something, do you have any more of that yellow(?) from the "sashing"? Could you do a thin border of than before the gazanias?

I'm sorry your boss feels it's okay to work you so hard. It's really not right. You still need time to heal.


That is a very pretty quilt, and I do love those K Fassett fabrics--well, except for that green border, I think I'd leave it off. The plaid effect is quite stunning.


I prefer it without a border too. I think such a busy fabric, beautiful though it is, doesn't help define the quilt. I'd be more inclined to use a plain color on the border or no border at all.

Hmm, if the only choice is that green fabric then I'd go without a border. I just don't think it does anything to highlight the quilt. Fun quilt though, nice and bright.
