You have a really pretty top! I know you will select a border that will be wonderful. This scrappy look like of grows on you, doesn't it?
I really like your pinks, yellows, and lavendars. I was taking Nana at her word when she said 'darks' so I didn't try to slip in any pretty colors! Can't wait to see what you do on borders and quilting. I know it will be beautiful, whatever you decide!
I'm still working on the borders. Should be finished this week-end. All of the tops are really looking good. This was a fun project. Have also been working on the 30 squares for July. May have to redo a couple, the pieces weren't as large as they should have been.
Very nice Pat. Looking forward to seeing your borders.
Looks great! Can't wait to see your borders.
Very pretty top Barbara. I'm still deciding on what I want to do for a border.

Wasn't this quilt alot of fun and so darn easy ..Love it . Barbara
EAT!! SLEEP !! QUILT!!
Thanks for the compliments on my quilt top. I haven't seen an ugly one yet, lol. I too took Nana literally and went for dark colors. I really like the brights some of you have used. I guess contrast is more important than "dark". Barbara, I hope you find that "fabulous" border. I am not expecing fabulous, just looking for acceptable. LOL! I know what I want to do, but will have to make a trip to purchase a little more fabric, hope to do that after work today.
Here are two pictures of my June Scrap Happy quilt top. After putting on two inner borders, I decided I wanted this for our queen sized guest bed and it would need more length. So, added another row of 9P & background and then added the inner side borders. I still haven't decided what to do for the outside borders, so it will sit for awhile. Pretty basic, but I really like it! Who would have thought from a pile of scraps...
Nana, thanks so much for organizing this one! I really enjoyed this and I think the process was good for me...forcing me out of my control mode and making me focus on a consistent 1/4 seam so my blocks will match and line up better. All in all, just what I needed...LOL!
Oops, forgot to post the pictures, so here you are:
And #2, showing the added row for length:
Donna, Very nice. I too am glad I joined in on this. Look forward to July's project. I have just returned from purchasing the rest of the fabric for my borders and backing. Looking forward to finishing it this week-end.
Finally took a picture of my nine patches Scrappy - I've enjoyed this one, too. I only had to make one more block in order to set it on point, wanted it to be a little different than all the others I've done in my years of quilting, have made so many nine patches, but they always look good! Also working on a scrap nine patch with larger squares for my local group, teaching them to make D9p next week.
Your quilt is so pretty. I think it will be great on your guest bed.
Very pretty and I love your border.
