Okay! So I decided to add borders....

My Sunday Best quilt just got bigger. It is 66.5 inches wide and 94 inches long. It will make a nice size bed quilt. After I saw the parade of quilts on Sherri`s and Sinta`s blogs, I just had to add the borders. It just made the quilts look so much better. So I worked on it all evening. I am proud to say this quilt top is all made from my stash. I didn`t go buy any new material. Well, now I have to get the backing put together.

I've got to say it does look better with the border not that it didn't look good before. Well done for using your stash too.

I love it with the borders. That type of border has been another thing on my to do list. I think I will just live vicariously through you!

It's very cute! I make a lot of quilts without borders but I think this one compliments the quilt well.
