It seems so close but feels so far with Colonial Rose.....


Dia Duit, I thought I would update you with my progress with Colonial Rose. Last night I sat up to midnight, stitching, the next row onto the quilt. Tonight I will stitch four rows to the top part of the quilt. I still have away to go. My thoughts were to add the last border, as in the navy white and pink flower. Due to the quilt measuring 2.3 metres by 2.4 metres, I will unable to do so.My thoughts are to simply bind the quilt in pink. My heart wants to do the navy/white and pink flower border, however it would not be practicable to do so. Would love to hear your thoughts.
Please accept my apologies, for not responding to your lovely comments, DH inadvertently deleted my emails.

She is beautiful Lyn. I think she needs the navy & white border to finish her off. But ultimately you are doing the work in Colonial Rose, and it needs to fit your bed and not be too big. Love Nessxoxo

This is NOT for the faint of heart, lol - wow it's just spectacular, Lyn! I think it would look awesome with the navy and white and pink flower border, but ultimately it does have to fit your bed!!!
