Border Upgrade

This is a picture of the original border for the Road to California top. I wasn't happy with the border. The density of the quilting wasn't the same in the border as in the interior of the quilt. With encouragement from Carla Barrett, I put the quilt back on the frame.

The colors are quite different due to the difference in lighting. The top is daylight. The bottom is artificial light.

This is the border after re-quilting it. Not a huge difference, but enough that I'm happier with it.

At any rate it is out of my hands now. My husband delivered it for me today while I was at work.

I will be anxious until the show in January. I'm nervous about how my work will compare with others. Anyone out there working a quilt for this exhibit too?


  1. You did a great job! You're work will compare well, I'm sure. Regardless, you've been given a valuable learning experience and by sharing with us; we learn too. Thank you.

  2. Well I think that's a show-stopping, jaw-dropping winner.

  3. It's an amazing quilt. Your work is wonderful and you should be very proud of it. Good luck for the exhibition...I assume it'll be judged? I'm visiting you from QuiltSue at Quilt Times.

  4. Oh my, I have feather envy. Beautiful!
