Last spring I cut out this quilt to possibly make during the May retreat. Since I didn't get to it then I decided it was time to get it made up now. I'm trying to decide if I want to add a small, calm border between the 9 patches and the center floral fabric. It has a couple additional borders after the 9 patches. What do you think? Maybe that dark green for a border, or a lighter cream or leave it as it is? Let me know what you think.
The pattern is from Quiltmaker's All Time Favorites, Spring 2001 magazine. (OMG who knew I would actually use a pattern from a magazine from 2001! I guess it made some sense to keep my old Quiltmaker mags.)
