Scraptacular Picnic Quilt - Take Two

After reading all the comments about the last border on this quilt, I finally decided to take the last border off and replace it with the yummy yellow fabric. I intend to use the other border to make a binding to finish off the quilt. I think this is much better, don't you agree?

 I also am working on making my first pieced backing for this quilt. I had one block left over when I was piecing the quilt. I also have the unused border, so I am trying to decide on how I will design the back. Thank you everyone for your wonderful and kind opinions. I auditioned alot of your suggestions and found that the yellow just makes it pop. I can't wait to finally have this one finished. It is going to be a much used quilt, I am sure of it.


  1. Wow what a transformation!! I love the way it turned out - awesome job!!

  2. The other border will make a great binding. This looks very sunshiny!

  3. I love your new yellow border it is just the finish needed and I agree with Susan I would use your previous border for binding as being narrower it would look great. Good luck on the finish.
