While the center of this little quilt was done a while ago, it has taken a while to decide on the borders. I actually found the fabric Kathleen Tracy used in her original quilt, at a quilt shop in Australia, $22 Australian for a meter of fabric and $15.20 for shipping. Thought about it for a bit, actually considered doing it, and then finally came to my senses. There was no WAY I was going to pay that much for a yard of fabric.
So I let go of the idea. And went through my stash. And found fabric that was just fine for the borders. I even decided not to make the corner squares on the outside border, as was done in the original pattern. It looked fine to me just like this, with a nice warm brown all the way around. What do you think? Any opinions?
