Top sewn..............

This quilt top looks so much better sewn together.

I auditioned this fabric for a border.  It is a little more red/purple than it looks here.  My initial feeling was that it was too dark.

The color is a little truer in this photo.  It really makes the darkest colors in the blocks stand out and then the lighter area glows.  I will have to look at it for a couple days before I make a final decision.  I couldn't find any red fabric that looked good with it.  I can still just finish it without a border too.
