Actually, it's up to each individual - unless they just choose Not to come to this thread, and then we could ALL show what we're working on as we add borders Whistling

OK ladies, I need your opinion please? I have shown this to Susan, as it is her center I have, and I bought some fabric I thought would go with it, but the stripes in the fabric are too wide? So, one possibility is to not use the whole strip, but that would take away from it I think, or just a solid strip in maybe a pretty blue or teal, and send this fabric on to the person, that can use the wide strip?

Any thoughts, suggestions?
This is Susan's block with the fabric I purchased... The first strip is about 3 inches, and I could cut it down a bit, but the flowers are 5 inches, big enough for the last person to use...

Well, I'm not in on this but I would use the strip in the left even if it is a bit wide, it's perfect.

y'know Karen - that's what I was thinking, the strip on the left is 2 solids - blue & black, and would be a nice match.

I love the richness of the colours - lovely choice, LK!

If I include the black and blue, it will be about 4 inches. If that is OK, I will add that? It will be 3&1/2 with seams?

oic.......... I was thinking of the stripe in the Middle because it looks the right size, but Karen was referring to the strip on the Far Left. It is very pretty - and I agree - it is perfect........... dunno if you need any more opinions, but the more I look at it, the more I like it!! Against the white of my center's outside area, it looks like it will be quite dramatic! And I really like that! Big Grin
Guess the only thing to wonder about is if the others are ok with the larger size of the borders they would add.

Barb, Betty, Audrey, and Cher - What's your idea for you adding more border fabric? Are you ok with it?

Betty posted re: Audrey's center - "Just received Audrey's insert..fell in live with it! Know I've been lagging and it's time to step up to the plate..hope seeing Audrey's masterpiece will do it! She also sent fabric, are we to send fabric as well?"

I replied: "You don't have to send fabric - some are, and some aren't. I didn't...
It's not part of the "deal", but if you have a particular fabric that you feel "must" go with your center, or you want to give fabric to one of your group, feel free to.

I wanted to be surprised with the choices others make, so I didn't want to hold anyone back, but that's ME.
I DO however want to see the progress. It's funny isn't it - how someone will see a fabric that just Goes Well with you piece, but you didn't see it, OR they shop at different stores than you, and I know I'll get fabric from the US added to my center that will not be available to me in Canada..."

Make it whatever is best for the quilt. I'm in this for the beauty and expression. These are not going to end up being big quilts so I'm fine with any size borders.

Thank you, Barb, for your input Lovey dubby

Some are having to be sure how much fabric they're using (for cost-wise reasons) and so I felt it would be fair to all to have specific fabric amounts/sizes of the borders to be added.
The sizes and instructions are in the 1st post.
