Klosjes gets bordered

A number of you were wondering if the border on my klosjes top was my own design. This pattern (which can be purchased from The Rabbit Factory) inspired me. My blocks are simplified and less crowded. This version (below) ... I like it a lot and am wondering if a fabric strip is needed to separate the body from the border. In the pattern above, the designer worked out that problem and I am thinking of following her/his lead.

There are only 15 blocks to do ..... and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I keep at them and not get tempted by something new.
So .... to answer your question if the border was my own design? Well, sort of.
Have a great day, eh!

Looking good. At first I thought I would have put in a narrow border between the centre and your outside border, but now I've changed my mind.

I used that pattern, Blooms all Around, as inspiration for one of my quilts too. It was on the cover of a Fons and Porter magazine about 2 years ago. I think your border is perfect with your klosjes.

I like it the way it is - more would be too much, I think. The edging is perfect and you were brilliant to simplify it.

The border is just beautiful! I love piecing and applique together. I have a couple of Rabbit Factory's patterns, one of which I have made, and I really love their designs.
