Almost Red and White

My Almost Red and White Quilt is finally pieced. I worked on it when I went on my get away and forgot all about it. I only had 2 more rows to add. Now how to quilt? Kathie do you recognize some of those fabrics?

I laid it out on the grass and took a picture from the deck. It is queen size. At first I was going to put borders on it. Now I like it without,  my husband wants a border. If he wants to sew it on it will get a border!

  7. Kelly, your quilt is absolutely beautiful!! HST are great, I'm playing around with some at the moment. Wouldn't it be funny if your husband did sew some borders on!! though I agree it's better without. I love your new header, it's fresh and fun!

  11. love it, love it, love it....somehow i think it will get a border but i'm not sure it will be bob sewing it on. but if the boy wants it....hmmmm...he IS a keeper! I do not think it needs a border. I would go with right size and if that means either more triangles vs border....i'd audition the border fabric!

  13. The red and white quilt is just gorgeous. I like it without a border. Your blue hydrangea is so pretty. Love to look at summer flowers.

  14. Looks so great!!
    I like no border on a one patch. Of course it's your quilt and you should make it your way. Great showcase of reds.
