Star Flower is a Flimsy!


After thinking about the borders for this quilt, I finally decided to use just the gold fabric as an accent border and I am really happy with that decision. Once I got over that hump it was a really quick process to get this lovely to the flimsy stage.

Now, again, I am not too sure how I want to proceed with the backing.

I do have a large geometric print fabric chosen but I am second guessing myself.

If I do use it as the backing I will have lots left over to potentially make pillowcases - or - I could use the remainders of the border fabric. If I use the border fabric for the backing I will have to supplement it and piece it all together and then what in the heck would I do with that large geometric print fabric!!!!. Decisions, decisions... :)

Your quilt is beautiful! The narrow gold border really makes the center of the quilt pop.

Wow! I'm in love!! ♥ ♥ ♥ 3 hearts. It is that beautiful. Excellent decision on the border. The gold brings out the hearts of the flowers. Personally, I would use the border fabric for the backing. The geometric print fabric can be used as backing on your next masterpiece. :^D

Beautiful job - that gold just sets it off wonderfully. Personally.... I'm lazy so if the geometric doesn't need piecing I'd use that =)
Go with what your gut tells you - it is normally right.

That large geometric print will make the PERFECT backing for this quilt!! I love to put big bold prints on the back of quilts... especially when they continue the color theme from the front. It makes for an unexpected surprise!!
