We have a winner

Consensus of opinion is without the inner border (that's the way I like it, too), so that's the way it's going to be. Now just need to get busy on the rest of the applique.

Spent some time playing with the Handiquilter and my Tulip Farm quilt. Not doing a great job, but learning some stuff anyway and I'm keeping this quilt, so won't be taking out stitches unless it's really bad!

Gratitudes:
1. A nice dinner at Red Lobster for my birthday today.
2. I think I'm going to like being 59 -- actually planning on enjoying the next year.
3. Making a decision on the Double Four Patch quilt borders.
4. Back home after dinner and it's still light out.
5. Enjoying all our blooming flowers as we pulled into the driveway.

Happy birthday ! Your double 4-patch quilt has been in my head for days. I think I need to make one, to make room for other quilts in my head. I need to make a dent in my purple fabrics. Hmmm - maybe I should make a test block right now ?

Happy birthday! I too love summer when the days are longer and the flowers are in bloom! Your quilt is looking stunning!

Cheers!

A birthday dinner at Red Lobster is my favorite treat too.

I love your quilt from the prior post. And I also like it without the inner border. Very nice.
