I can't think of a single quilt I have made this year that didn't have some type of border around it. While I was making this one I was asking myself why that was.
I came to the conclussion that I prefer a good border on a quilt like I prefer a framed picture with a mat around it. I like the added weight it gives, more substance, bigger presence, whatever you want to call it, I just like it.
With that being said, I quite like this one (a total knock off of this quilt) without a border.
Here is a closer look at the stash pieces I used. I scored! I bought them all on the cheap in the remnant section of my local quilt shop. They are Woodland Friends Circles, Recess Fun and Games in blue, Stencil Floral from Holly Hill, with some solids thrown in. The backing is a piece from Hobby Lobby. Mom bought it for fiesta night but gave it to me when our reunion was over.
I think this one is going to get wrapped up for my youngest daughter for Christmas. Unfortunately it isn't one of my finishes for the challenge. Can I count it anyway?
So, I'd like to know how you feel about borders. Love 'em or hate 'em I'd love to hear your thoughts.
