A Pocket Full of Posies - now a finished flimsy

 My last post on April 28 had me about to put borders
on my latest AHIQ Quilt Along quilt.

After playing around for a while I went with the border treatment below

a single fabric border just didn't look right so after a bit of faffing
around I hit on the idea of splitting and inserting a thin strip
of the fabric used to make the centre collage.

The finished top is now 45 and 1/2" square.

I think this border treatment is definitely going to be used again on
a future quilt or quilts.

Just wandered in here, it’s fate! I’ve been quiltmaking and crafting for decades, but had to scale back because of arthritis in my aging hands. However, I kept trying and am now addicted to making string blocks. I am SO looking forward to what you do with yours!

It is a wonderful artwork in cloth. You are right the strip around the edge really completes the look holding all of it together.
