Borders! Big step forward.
I have added borders to my quilt! The first picture is the quilt on my design wall which is 4' x 8' and you can see the width of the quilt is too large for my wall. You might also notice that the rocks have more dimension and there are shadows at the waters edge. This was done with fabrics paint. My favorite fabric paint is Stewart Gill which can be found at the larger quilt shows.
The second picture is of the border fabric when I was auditioning it. I love these fabrics. I actually bought these on fabric.com and am really pleased with the quality and price.
I now want to extend the design into the lower borders. The water also needs an overlay of organza and tulle. This is and exciting step since now I see the end in sight. This will be a bear to quilt!
Looks like the final size will be around 60 inches wide by 80 inches tall.
