Thanks to all who left me some suggestions on the border for my quilt.  I decided on lap quilt size instead of wall hanging.  I added a border of the white, of the green (same fabric as the tulip leaves) and then another border of white.  I just love the way it frames the piece.

I basted it Friday night during FNSI.

The colors in this fabric line - Honey, Honey by Kate Spain - are just beautiful.

I quilted it on Saturday - what fun it was!  I think it took me about 3 hrs, perhaps slightly longer.

I decided to do an all over FMQ stipple quilt on the actual blocks.   For the border, I did feathers - 4 really, really long feathers!

Next step is the binding.  I am going with a solid green which matches the darker green in the tulip leaves.  The backing is one of the pretty flowered prints from this fabric line.

I am making a smaller version of the row-a-long from Lori at Bee in my Bonnet.

Hope to get the binding on and sewn by the weekend.

Happy Stitching!
