Do you think it needs a narrow border? Something dark and TOT maybe? The plain white on the edges where you grip the quilt might become grubby quickly--so perhaps a 3" or so border would be good? It finishes at 80" square--no matter how wonky the picture looks! I was standing on a step stool trying to include the bottom of the quilt over the edge of the long arm and the picture is a bit skewed--but in real life its square! The pattern had random appliqued simple bird shapes on it, I'm considering adding some. It would make the quilt more unique. Hmmmmmm See what everyone has on their wall at Patchwork Times.

And a few more pictures from Sertoma Butterfly House---
Everywhere you looked there were butterflies--on the wall, flitting through the air, on bushes, and sometimes they landed on you!
|A Swallowtail--not sure which species|
|Don't I look like a dead leaf??|
Don't you think that brown butterfly looks exactly like a dead leaf? Everywhere I looked there were all these "dead leaves". But the room was filled with the most BEAUTIFUL bright blue butterflies. Theywere the dead leaves--when they opened their wings they were so beautiful, an electric neon blue--but I could not capture them in flight for the camera.
I found this picture on the internet--
Have a great week!
