Sandstorm Quilt Top Done!

28 Jun

Lakeville-20130702-00353

Here it is with the border on! I decided to go with uneven borders. On two of the adjacent sides the border is 2and 3/4 inches, and on the other two sides the border is 5 inches. I really wanted to go for uneven borders after someone mentioned it on my facebook post, that it would add depth. And She was right! I love the way it looks! I was going to go for angled sides, but I decided I liked it the way it was, and I like the squareness of it contrasting with the entropy of the the rest of the top.

I have decided to give this quilt to Quilts of Valor, and I’m not going to lie. It will be hard to part with, because I love it quite a bit. Since I know it is going to a good cause, I can accept with it. I hope whoever receives it will love it as much as I do!

    Wow! The different sized borders is an interesting concept and I think it works really well with your improv piecing. And what a fantastic cause you are donating it to, well done all round.
