FNSI with “Irene”

I was delighted to sit in the cave last night and enjoy sewing again.
My " Goodnight Irene " has been hanging on the design wall forever and it was great to put all the rows together

tonight I am going to join my Northern Friends for another FNSI and I hope to get the borders on BUT not sure whether to do this ??????

  5. I like the red, it makes the rest of the red in the quilt "pop". But as always, you should follow your heart and do what you like!! xx debbie

  8. Your quilt is pretty in those colours and will look fabulous whichever option you choose.
    If it was mine I'd definitely frame it with that little red border.

  29. You should be so happy with the way this has turned out. I must say I like the red border, but it is your quilt so you do whichever you like the best, as either will frame it nicely. Looking forward to seeing it finished.
