The pattern for this has two different border options and I can't decide which one I like best. If I was so inclined, I could probably sketch them out in EQ5 but since it would probably take me longer to do that than to sew them on, I've made a decision. Instead of making one large bed quilt, I'm making two lap size quilts, then I can try a different border on each one. What you see above is the finished size of one, minus the borders.
I had in mind the perfect border for this - something like this - minus the quarter:
I used to have some of this - in fact, I used to have a lot of this, but now that I want it, I don't have any left - it's Northcott's Abbey Road. When I couldn't find anything similar, I did buy something that will work, but I keep second guessing myself. I could also see a nice blue and white toile border working....
It's pretty sad when the highlight of my day is trying to decide on a fabric. I keep wondering when, if ever, life is going to get back to normal around here, but I don't think it's going to happen anytime soon.
