I’m ready to move on

I’d¬†originally¬†planned to add borders to this quilt although I’d worked up both a version with and without borders in EQ but I’ve got a lot to accomplish in the next few weeks. It’s a good size for donation now so I’m calling this top done as of now. I know not everyone likes quilts without borders but I do and the original antique quilt that inspired this one had no borders either.

You can find a brief description on how I made this quilt on my website along with a couple other options… including one with borders.

    I like it. I think a lot of people use borders as a way to frame the design and to make the quilt bigger, they really aren’t necessary. It looks great just like this.

    I really like this quilt!! I’ve been sharing the joys of quilts with my two youngest daughters (19 and both making 2-sided dorm quilts for next year!) The list-maker/organizer loves the scrappy, crazy quilt look, and is definitely not a fan of borders; her “loosey-goosey” (she hates that label) sister is, oddly enough, drawn to sashes and borders, and a more “orderly” look in her “favorite” quilts. I suppose they both take after me…loosey-goosey mom who loves the scrappy, no-border quilts most.
    Keep inspiring us!

    That is a stunning quilt! I like it without borders. It really speaks for itself without them.

    Oh, Mary, I LOVE IT!!!!!! It doesn’t need borders–it “speaks” for itself! I agree with Debbie.
