I ended up adding the sashing around the entire center just because I thought it looked better. Then I added the black stop border and the 6 inch outer border. Now it looks like the the black border is floating!
I love it!
Now I have to start the other one. I don't think I have enough fabric for the backing of both quilts so I think I will wait till the second one is done to the same stage to see
how much i need to add to get the both done with the same backing fabric.
She sent me the Dr Seuss fabric that has the words he used from a number of his books.
When Tory first started talking about the quilt I bought some Dr Seuss prints to make two pillows for them, good thing I thought of two pillowcases that far back! Tory's mother loves SpongeBob SquarePants so I bought some of that as well. More pillowcases!
I have to admit, I like SpongeBob myself!
