Border Number One......


Is on....



The instructions say to cut this first border at 1 1/2 " but I have cut mine at 2  1/2" - I like it just that little bit wider.  I have cut the second border, ready to go,  I have cut it at 6 1/2" - I wanted to see as much of that yummy 'Chocolat' fabric as I could!!

More to come tomorrow I hope........

How lovely to have a long weekend here for Anzac Day, perfect Autumn weather to stitch some more.....

Ditto on the wider boarder. The colors of your quilt just pop with that choice.
