Borders make a difference

I had a vision what my borders would be for Oh Wonderful, Summer's Here and they did not disappoint me. 

After sewing on two borders, my top was hung onto the design wall, I stepped back and "oh my" were the words that came out of my mouth. I knew those borders would enhance my top, but not as much as shown below.  I'm doing the happy, happy dance.  :o)
The next photo shows the other two borders sewn on.  This project is now a completed top.  The size:  99-1/2" x 99-1/2".  Love it!!!!
The journey was a long one, but what a thrill to have it all done. 

You want to know something?   I feel absolutely lost now that this project is done!  It was started in April 2011 and has been my summer project since then.


Have a day!

Absolutely beautiful!! The borders are wonderful, as is the centre! What are your plans for the quilting? I hope you can find another project to make up for the feeling of loss of this one :-)

It is beautiful. I am not one to like borders on quilts. But, I do agree here, it really was needed. Great choice the color is just right. Yeah on your finish, so many stitches only a quilter could understand. I get that lost feeling after a finish too, I am sure you will find a new project to focus on now.

It looks amazing! Can't wait to see it in person. Isn't is funny how we feel lost when a project is completed!

I really LOVE this quilt (and I'm not a "scrappy" person! If you're feeling too lost, you could always start making another one, but for me this time?
