Top finished


I finished the butterfly top tonight. It looks much better with the borders. It sat unfinished for months because I didn't like how it was turning out but now it's not so bad and will make a nice charity quilt.

Here's the picture I posted the other day of it without borders.

This little quilt certainly grew with some borders - grew prettier too! Very nice.

Cheers!

Ah, lovely quilt.... I hadn't thought about the pieced border, but it really adds to the top!

Oh, Mary! I just love it. I sure wish I could coordinate colors like that. It is really great and I just can't believe what a difference the borders made. Beautiful!!

The checkerboard border really brightens this quilt up! It's great :-)

Glad you're happier with it. The borders sometimes make the quilt, even though they are "extra" huh :-)
