Quilting and Stuff by Knitnoid

Time to Decide on the Borders



I took some liberties with the snowmen and declared the block finished.  Now the center of the quilt is done and it’s time to figure out what to do about the border.

Right now the top measures roughly 48″ x 64″, which I suppose is a good size for a throw, but I have another Christmas quilt top that is 51″ x 59″, so I think I want it larger.  The pattern was shown in three sizes:

  • Small –  58″ x 74″ with a 1-1/2″ white spacer border followed by a 3-1/2″ border from what appears to be a woven plaid and heart
  • Full – 70″ x 86″ which then adds a 6″ white border with appliqued holly leaves, stars and hearts
  • Queen – 86″ x 102″ same as above with a final 8″ border in a green gingham

The small size is roughly where I’d like to finish up — maybe a bit bigger at 60 x 76 — so perhaps the 1-1/2″ spacer and then a 4-1/2″ print — but which one?



Maybe I need to see what I can find in my stash for the spacer and go from there.
