I recently read that "value does the work but color gets the credit". That is a wonderful saying. In this top, I think that I could have used a different border for value..but, I think it will work with a red binding. However, the driving force behind this border was the absolutely adorable print. I got it at maybe $1 a yard years ago; it is 48 inches wide. I am going to use it on the back too because I love it so.
I think that I have one more UFO top to finish. Then I will have a million to quilt when I am off on my November retreat!!
