Can't decide on the border. Only want it for the sides as it's already 72" long and it's a lap quilt. Do you like the darker red purchased in PA or the original fabric which is on the dividing rows?

Seriously? You are already unpacked and working on this? Roll Eyes

Dark Red.

Lay the dark red over the original fabric or above the top sashing. If that looks good, I would cut the original the same width as the sashing and sew it to the sides. (I see the sashing at the top and assume that it is at the bottom too.) The finish with a dark red border.

I tend to like my border to frame the whole quilt using the same fabric.That said I'm inclined to use the original fabric on the sides if the top and bottom are also the original fabric. If the intent is to frame the entire quilt in the darker then I would go with the darker. Super Row quilt...

I love the red. I'm not unpacked, but I got home at 3 am. I think I found all the dirty clothes and they are in the hamper.
I need to bring show & tell to work tomorrow

I agree with Nancy. Original on the sides to finish the sashing, then border all around with the dark red. Looks great!
Now was that serendipity for your challenge?

I sometimes cut a 1"-1-1/2" strip in an accent color (in your case the dark red), fold it in half, wrong sides together and sew it betweeen the quilt and the border. Adds an extra dimension which looks really nice.

I would do a 2" finished border with the red fabric to give a separation to the outer border. Use the original fabric as the outer border and bind it in the red fabric. IMHO...

Great row robin Smile I'm leaning to the darker but then would need to be all the way around. I have mine pinned on a curtain in the dining room just admiring it.

Like that border solution. Looks really nice.

Don't think I have enough of my sashing to do the same. um, will have to spend time figuring out what to do.. but that's a winter project.

Charlene: Check out Free Style Quilts by Susan Carlson...it's adapted from that. Because I didn't blend everything into ONE object in this case, it's individual items glued on..then netted and stippled.
The Pig I made for NC was closest to her technique. GREAT step by step book..Her second one is Serendipity Quilts.

Cheryl, my, haven't you been busy! Your borders look great on your RR! And your scrappy pig is awesome! Been wanting to give that technique a try myself some time...haven't yet. Great job!

I like what you decided on with the border. It's going to look great when you're finished.
