Making Border Progress

Though I have a few things to fix here and there (ie., couple chopped off triangle points, little extra unexpected length, etc.), two of this quilt's borders are on! The third border is all pieced together. I need to square and even up all of it's edges, and it will get attached tomorrow morning. I think I am happy with how the scrappy blues are looking on the border. I will likely do a scrappy blue binding too. Later today I will put it onto the bed to see if the sides have adequate drop, but I think they are fine.

Wow, Margaret! That border really changes the look of the quilt top. I really like the scrappy blue border and think it brings out the hearts even more. Impressive.

That border is perfect...really works well and sets the center piecing off perfectly. A plain border just wouldn't have looked as good.
