I love the way you audition your borders. I really like the aqua fabric.


Great series. I love the green one.

Charlotta Norby

Favorite color(s): prints it is red and in batiks it's green. They're so different that I can't lump them together. Good job on new fabrics, but tutorial on picking borders didn't really give any guidelines or tangible information to use for the future.


You nailed it with the reds Pat!


Love the final border selection. Thanks for sharing your selection process. For your new line, do I have to have one fav???? I love the blue with the medallion, the orange dots, speak to me, the grey with the daisies is just adorbs & the green with the words is da bomb. I sure hope some vendors at the Oaks show have some with them. I NEED yardage. No pre-cuts for me :)


I loved the green and thought the narrow border needed more strength. And I think the blue works perfectly! It reins in all the busyness and it looks awesome.

Shirley in Canada

anything in the batik is my favorite color!! ;-)

Tammy Mabry

I absolutley love the cone flower in the green and I love that you chose the green/blue border for your quilt. So pretty! All of your fabrics are pretty becuase I like the colors you work with. Thanks for sharing!

diane Motley

I have difficulty choosing borders so I especially enjoyed this tutorial.
As for your new line, right now I'm liking the aquas, but tomorrow…..who knows!

Diana Nelson

The final choice is great. Love how the quilt looks.


Loving the daisies on blue! Thanks for sharing such valuable and timely information about choosing border fabrics. I'm working on that, too. ☺


I love that all of you stopped in to see how I do fabric auditions!

Nancy Braman Hutchison

orange binding/inner border is pretty cherry

Ruth Ann Henderer

I liked the blue daisies BUT perhaps with the lighter teal/blue as the inner border instead of the green.

Rose Marie McDonald

Love this series. I love the orange and the green.

Angie in SoCal

That was my favorite too - the green. My fav color in this collection is the orange. Love this series - learning a lot.

Sue Babich

PERFECT !!!! Love the blue sashing & green border !


Yay! I'm so glad you went with the green - that was my initial fave :-)
