Quilt Top Finished.

The rain started shortly after lunch yesterday and hasn't let up since. We had 80 mls in the rain gauge this morning and another 20 since then. So I took the opportunity for some "my time." I added the final black borders to my variation on a Bento Box quilt. It is  generous single bed size and I am delighted with the lovely batik colours  with the black and white. I may have stretched the outside 2 borders just a tad: I hope not.Next question . "Am I going to quilt it myself?" I haven't yet decided.

It's gorgeous - and very trendy looking. I love that the batiks are not overpowering. I say be brave and quilt it yourself - lol.

I love it. It has turned out so well and I love the batiks. I would say yes quilt it yourself then it is totally made by you!
