Tulip progress

I am making a smaller version of the row-a-long from Lori at Bee in my Bonnet using a Honey Honey layer cake (Kate Spain.)

I finished my row of baskets.

And assembled my quilt top.

I really like the way that it turned out.   I hung up the quilt flimsy to get a photo. 

Border or no border?

If I went with a border, it would be a strip (scrappy) about 1 inch to an inch and then another 2 inches of the white. 

Right now it measures 36" by 48" which is just fine for a wall hanging.

Adding a border could add 6" to each dimension - 42" by 54" - and suddenly I would have a lap quilt.  

What would you do?  Wall hanging or lap quilt?

Border or no border?

Happy Stitching!


  1. I like a border on a quilt, having said that I am getting ready to bind a quilt with no border.
    I did make a small quilt just using the baskets and tulip blocks from the row along, it was perfect for a present. I like it so much that I intend to make one for myself using a few more of the blocks.

  2. I would add the border and make a lap quilt.

  3. A scrappy green border made all the difference with mine. Truly. The top, bottom and sides were different. Mine was a scrappy quilt top. So I agree with Gene. Or would look nice hanging it on the wall above the bed in a child's room.
