I'm Back - Opinions Wanted

Yay, I'm back in the blogging world!  My wonderful DH finally found my camera charger, so I can finally post pictures of my projects.  Now I can post update pics of everything I've been working on.  Here's the progress on my Fire & Ice quilt from the Carol Doak class I started at the Lowell Quilt Festival in August.

Here's where I could use your opinion... Do you like how extending the inner border out into the border to showcase the corner stars or do you prefer to just have the corner stars next to the border?  After photographing it, I think I'm leaning in one direction, but I'm not going to say which one, as I want some other opinions.  I've had this up on my design wall for a few weeks now and I haven't been able to make a decision. Here are close ups of both option.

To give an idea of size, those corner squares are a total of 6 1/2" square, so some of those pieces are really small.  


I'll post more later on with more of my recent work that I haven't been able to post about.  


  1. This is a hard one. I like it both ways. I think I lean toward having the inner border extended into the outer border. Gives it a little pizzazz.

  2. My first thought was not to extend it, BUT upon looking some more definitely leaning toward extending the inner borders out. I like how they draw your attention to the corner squares -- and attention should be drawn to them since they have all that work!

    Where the inner border is not extended out, they just get kind of lost in the border, and that's no fun!
