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.
