A co-worker asked me if I would finish a quilt top that she inherited from a family member. All that needed to be done is to add the outer borders. I said I would if she picked out the border and binding fabrics she wanted. We agreed that I would measure the quilt top and let her know how much fabrics to purchase. Below are the fabrics she purchased in the layout that she thought would be good.
I suggested this alternative which she liked better.
This is the finished flimsy ready to make into a quilt sandwich. It turned out to be queen-size with enough length to cover pillows.
