Thank you to everyone who gave me an input on what to do on the borders of the red and white swap quilt! Your suggestions got me thinking, but in the end I did something a bit different from my own and your suggestions:
I brought the cornerstones I used between the blocks with me into the corners of the white border, I did a solid red on the edges, and made four extra 6" blocks for the corners. It was fun to do, and so far I like the result. My friend Yvonne has been over, and she helped me layer it, and now it's pin basted and ready for quilting. Not completely decided on what to do, but it looks like it will be an over-all stippling in the white, and then maybe something fun in the borders :o)
Hope you're having a happy Easter!
Hugs and stitches from
