Quilt a day #47

I had a busy day with a teacher appreciation lunch and 4-H leaders meeting and sitting in on Doug's search and rescue meeting which lasted an hour longer than mine did. However, I did manage to finish this top I showed in progress a couple days ago. I am debating borders or no border and just quilting and binding. It will take some auditioning to get to that point. I am absolutely thrilled with this quilt. I used the State Flower fabrics from many years ago and all the frame strips were from my scraps. There are 50 big diamonds and then I used some of the fabrics to fill in around the edges. Right now it measure 38 X 55 approx.

Wow - that is a glorious quilt - so uplifting and bright. I would opt for no borders just because it is so gorgeous like it is - but then I've not seen the fabrics you might use for the border. Or maybe a white stopper border and then a pieced diamond border of the same flower prints? I think a solid border of a printed fabric might detract from the diamonds. Ok - there you have all my opinions. LOL

Another beautiful quilt and another great idea for focus fabrics.

Another beautiful quilt Julie. And a very neat way to showcase focus fabrics.

Sorry about the double posting, my first comment said it didn't work so I tried again.

That looks WAY more awesome than my 50 states quilt! :) Love it!
