This inner border gave the quilt a nice frame. It was tempting to leave off the final border, but I wanted the quilt to be larger. With the final border it finished off at 45".
This quilt just might be the first time that I actually enjoyed putting the borders on a quilt. Normally, I dread the whole border process and put it off as long as possible. This time I just took my time and enjoyed the journey. Could this be a benefit of aging? Maybe my theme song is no longer, "I'm in a Hurry to Get Things Done." lol
