Greetings from Finland - top finished?


I thought that my GJ top would be finished, but when I look it more carefully...
I'm not pleased with the outer border and the points of the extension...

KRRR...
Maybe I redo it, if I have enough fabric:(

Anyway I have time before my backing fabric arrives...
And I haven't yet decided how will I quilt it...
Maybe I'll wait and read your hints;)

This Journey has been so fun,
that I really looking forward our next journey -
with Tis the Season!

Thank you for your all support
during my GJ journey!!!


PS: After sharpening the ripper...

perhaps... a little bit better???

Great,Congratulations to you as well. Such a good feeling,isn`t! I think your border looks nice, matching the house block. I am going to reduse the seize of mine as I think it is too wide. Happy Quilting to you:-)
