A new plan for borders and QUILTING

Thanks for letting me know that the link in previous post wasn't' working correctly. I went in an changed it and think I've fixed it now. ;)

I had planned to do borders last night but after kids were put to bed was too tired to think. :P

and actually I'm glad I slept on it b/c I do not have a large print fabric in my stash to use for final border like Quiltmaker Magazine suggests... but went back to look at Suebee's blog photos
I noticed that she used the black for #1 then the fabric she substituted for what they called for green for #2 and then her big #3 border was the same as her what they called for red in the blocks... and i think it looks very nice framing the busy quilt...

So today after Mass when I get home and get the twins to napping, that is the same formula I'm gonna use...

1st do black they call for cut at 2"
2nd do my green (hope I have enough) cut at 2.5"
and 2nd for larger border do the same red i used in the quilt. Wink cut at 5"

SPECIAL NEWS TO SHARE WITH YOU - I also was reading around last nigt on blog land and discovered a new to me blog in PERFECT timing b/c she is a new longarm quilter getting started and offering super low prices for anyone who can get them their quilt top to her in the next 7 days!!!!
