Quilt retreat project

I need to learn how to crop the photos
 I want in the blog.
I attended a guild retreat last weekend and had a wonderful time with quilting friends.  I pieced the inside of a top that, to be honest, I wasn't sure I'd ever finish.  It was a kit I purchased during my move when most of my fabric was packed away.  I love the inside, but am not happy with their suggested borders.  The top is on the wall until I decide what it needs next.  I'm hoping it talks loud and soon!  At first I thought of adding a white then red border, but I'm beginning to think the border needs to be pieced as well . . . or will that distract from the center?  Suggestions are welcome. 

I finished the feathers on the top I started at Cindy Needham's design workshop.  I will be working on quilting the (dense) backgrounds.  I'll post a photo when I'm further along.

Thanks for checking in.


  1. That turned put beautiful! And I love pieced borders. But make it simple.

  2. You should do some sample pieced borders (just a foot or so to see if you would like it. I like the top the way it is too in the picture but remember thinking in person that it needed a border too. Weird.
