Asking for opinions!

This is the quilt top I made from the $3 scrap bag from the quilt show in Pigeon Forge. It is a large throw size. The blocks are 5 inch squares. I just had to add the white fabric.

Now what I am asking is - do you think I need another white border. I think it looks unfinished and I have enough white fabric to add a border strip. If so do you think it should be the width of the other strips or should I made the border strip wider?

I do value the opinions of all you ladies and gentlemen out there in blog land. Let me hear from you!

Thank you Linda and Piwacket!

I received these lovely crocheted pot holders from Linda and Piwacket http:\\ for my PIF. This is really a bit of nostalgia for me. My grandmother used to make these and I hadn't seen any in years. So these are really special to me because they brought back a wonderful memory.
I now have my three people to send my PIF's to from my last PIF. But I am going to be signing up folks for this PIF soon, so keep reading my blog for your chance to sign up for a new PIF.
Tomorrow I hope to post pics of my quilt top made from the bag of $3 scraps from the quilt show in Pigeon Forge. I need some advice on it.

PIF's in the mail!!

I realize I'm not good at blogging very often. I am going to try to do better and get some pictures on here. In the meantime...

Trudi and Deanna your gifts are in the mail today. I was waiting on the third person who signed up to send her address. But alas life must have taken a turn and I have to assume she is unable to join in so I need a third person who wants to receive a gift and join in this PIF.

I have it ready to go so if you enjoy PIF's please consider signing up with me and sending me your snail mail addy and I will get your gift off to you. In return you agree to PIF to three people. It is lots of fun.

I do have to add that I went to a wonderful quilt show in Pigeon Forge TN last week. It was wonderful. One of the vendors was selling those five yard bundles at a bargain price but... the best thing they had was the scrap bags. $3.00 for a bag full of coordinated fabrics. I bought six of them and wish I had bought more. Some of the strips were as much as 7 to 10 inches wide and all were WOF. I have already made one top from one of the bags.

Still waiting on some warm weather here in the not so sunny south.
