Wow! Those squares look really orange in this photo. They really are not so bright. The squares will go all the way around the top with a dark border as the outer edge. Notice how they go around the corner! I am so proud of myself!

This top will be about 60 x 80, and maybe I will applique some leaves on it. Maybe.

A very pretty fall quilt. I like your color choices and the border.

Sounds like you had a great time at the Quilt Festival, and I really like that quilt. It definitely has that "fall" feel to it. IMHO, it doesn't need anything.

Nice quilt and congrats on getting the corners to work so well.

This is really a stunning quilt! Makes me want to light the fireplace and put a pumpkin pie in the oven! It's just beautiful!

Very nice! This one looks appropriate for fall.

What a neat border for the quilt. Perfect for autumn decoration. A few appliqu├ęd leaves scattered over the top would be just the right finishing touch - my humble opinion of course!

I like strip quilts - these colors are great too. I don't always take the time to piece a border but they can really add so much.

Gosh, I just never know what beautiful quilt awaits when I click on your site! Another beauty - and I do really like the pieced border - good job on the corners! I did one of those borders last winter and had to go back and "adjust" about every other seam to make it work - phew! AND - I see that your Little Helper stays off the top - AMAZING - mine loves to roll all over them!

Cheers!

I love this quilt...the colors are beautiful and the border really sets of the center and adds interest. Great job with the quilt...and figuring out the math!

What a wonderful, fall colored quilt! And the borders are awesome-I always chicken out on pieced borders.

Beautiful quilt - and is that little one watching the quilt like someone might watch tv?! Cutie!

Very clever to get the corners like that - great job! I love the sideways strippy setting of the onpoint blocks - very nice. That would work with all kinds of blocks.

This is a great border for a beautiful quilt. I really like fall colors, and that gold color has been calling to me lately.
