Them, while visiting my mom the first week of December, I went to a favorite quilt shop where she lives thinking I might find fabric for backing and binding.
What I came across was this pretty floral from Garden Variety by Lella Boutique for Moda.
After I got home, I started to think that it was way too pretty to end up on the back of the quilt! So... this happened!
It was hard to get a good picture that shows the true color of the border after it was sewn onto the quilt, so I took a few close-ups.
I like the light blue and white flowers in it.
The greens and peachy/pink/oranges appealed to me, too!
I even ended up with enough of the border print to make the backing, too - the best of both worlds! The gray sashing fabric will become the binding now. This quilt is going to measure just about 50 x 60.

How pretty is that! I'm so glad you found a fabric that you love for the borders :)
Nice choice! It picks up a lot of the colors in the quilt.
that is great you had enough for border and backing - it looks really nice
It looks great with the print - fun how that happens
That is a really cute floral fabric. Guess it was just waiting to come home with you!
That's a gorgeous floral! What a great find.
What a great choice, so pretty!
You hit a home run with that fabric purchase, and with the quilt too! Don’t you love it when a plan comes together?? I hope you get the binding on so you can enjoy some slow stitching to finish it over the next few days of Christmas! Have a wonderful week! xo
Beautiful finish! Great job... it reminds me I have that pile of blocks to do something with!
Have a Merry Christmas.
So pretty -- it adds a little pizzazz to an already pretty quilt! How fun!
I love your rainbow sampler block quilt!
The floral fabric really sets your blocks off well. Congratulations on getting your top finished before Christmas. Making these blocks was so much fun.
Your quilt became a lot more interesting and lively with that pretty floral!
Love the new fabric border. Great choice.
Goes to show you, who knows where a quilt design might decide to go. That floral is lovely!
What a beautiful choice!
It's perfect! That print is so pretty. I've had my eye on the Garden Variety line for awhile, I just love it.
Great choice fork the border. Always nice to find something you really like.
