I just returned from a weekend retreat and I was pleased to have put the borders on a difficult piece. I had purchased two polar bear wall hangings while we were in Alaska, ohhhhhh, maybe 5 years ago now. And I had completed both to the top stage.
Now that I am into completing UFOs for credit (hee hee) I decided to put them together and make a single quilt top from the two hangings. And they looked great, however the blues were just slightly off and nothing would go with it. Finally after searching for a couple of weeks, I found the blue/purple border that makes it zing!
And I was so pleased about putting the borders on and it looking so good that I put it on the design wall when I got home last night!
So on my design wall are polar bears.......and yes, I know one is up side down....................
