Square2 almost done!

I decided to name this mini "Square2", as in square squared...  I got the quilting all done yesterday, and had much more fun quilting it than piecing it!  As I've said before, I'm enjoying more and more the quilting part of a quilt than just about anything else!  FUN!

All that's left is the binding, which I hope to get done before Saturday, as I have a full week-end planned with no time to sew!

I also have been trying hard to come up with a border design for my husband's quilt (still needs a name).  I have extra fabric and want to make it bigger, but am coming up just shy with everything I got.  I wanted to extend the design into the border, but don't have enough of the tan.
That's all I got... 17 inches...  So I gathered up my leftover "strip set strips", and tried this out.
I love the way this looks, but again, I'm just shy of having enough to go all the way around. I really don't want to buy anymore fabric.  I'm now thinking of just "skipping the borders", and using the leftover fabric on the back.  Any other ideas?

  1. So what about.... finding another tan that comes close, just a bit darker and fade into it, randomly on the borders? It will introduce another color... and allow you to get bigger.
