    This is what I have so far. . . trying to figure out the boarder with what I have on hand. Thinking about using leftovers from quilt along with darker grey boarder doing squares double layered. Dark grey being ng every other one. This is only my second quilt and still in piecing mode. Thank you for suggestions. If

    Lovely design and colour combinations. I like your idea of dark grey -- it will harmonize well with all the colours. You might consider an inner border of the light grey you are using for the sashing. That will frame the quilt nicely. Then the border you suggest with alternating double squares. I think that will be really classy.

    Beautiful pattern and color choices. I agree dark gray would be a good border.

    IMG_20170919_164335.jpg IMG_20170919_164335.jpg Finally finished it up yesterday after work. I do wish I had some more of the grey to do a final boarder, but I didn't and it wasn't in the budget for more fabric. I have it laying on a double bed. Hers is a twin so the double block boarder will hang over on hers. Just thought I'd share the finished quilt. Found out a couple weeks ago that we will be getting another grand baby in April. Still don't know sex so will wait before I start another blanket, but I think not too bad for being my second quilt.

    Thank you ladies for the compliment! It means a lot when hearing it come from true quilters. This may become a new hobby when I'm not busy with all the other work that needs to get done. I do have to admit while working on it, the housework got a little laxed. :oops:

    Its been done for the last month and a half but party was yesterday. With her being two she was more interested in the big birthday bag it came in and the Barbie doll i think, but her parents both loved it. Can't ask for anything better. . . :)
