And then there are the quilts that a border would just ruin, in my opinion, like these:
Still, I have to put borders on these Simple Life quilts. So I thought I'd make it a little fun and use the panels as corner squares in the borders. Makes it a little better, no?
Linking up! Have a great Wednesday. Come back Friday for my finish (another real finish for me!).
