Finishing...

 Thank each of you for helping me with this border!!  I decided you were right, it should be simple, but scrappy...so I used the same pieces as my sashing and added to the sides...and that was enough!  It seemed finished to me.
 Here it is, all done and ready for quilting!  scrappy binding is all ready too.  Yahoo!
 I finished this little quilt, for a friend.
 Also this little one too come into being, from the scrap bin, for Valentine's day.
And I am plugging away at my plaid rail fence too.  These blocks finish at 4 inches, so I need a whole bunch of them still.



Hope each of you has a great day!  Not feeling too great today, but I hope to be all better soon...I think dear husband shared his cold with me!

The flying geese quilt looks perfect with the scrappy binding! Great job as it does not overwhelm the rows of geese.

I absolutely LOVE your quilt top. So much so that I rushed and began cutting up a phone book to start paper piecing my own version. Thanks for the inspiration.
