Snowflake Quilt Top Finished

Aug 25, 2010

The snowflake quilt top is finished!  Or least I decided it was done.  There is supposed to be one more wide border according to the pattern.  The fabric on the right hand side is what came with the kit.  No way man!  First of all, the tones don't match... and the pattern on the fabric is too country for the rest of the fabric palette. 


I debated trying to find another yard and a half of the Marble Dots by Moda being used for the binding (fabric on the left hand side).  But the current width of the quilt will allow me to hang it up in my two-story great room where I have a couple quilts displayed that change with the seasons.  This will make a nice quilt to display in January when Ohio winters are so cold.

I am not sure if having white as your last border is a cardinal quilting sin, but hey, live 'n learn right?

We'll see this puppy again when she's back from my long-arm quilter...

  1. I don't think it matters that your last border is white, but then again I don't usually play by the rules either. It will still pop with that binding you will be using anyway. This quilt is GORGEOUS!

  2. I love it! I think it turned out really cool- pun intended. I think there are no rules inquilting. I just made a quilt with a white border. It's at the longarm but I'll post photos when it's back. Good work!

  3. White is fine as a border. It'll make your binding a statement!
