Despite the fact that I really tried to make a nine-patch pieced border for this quilt, it just didn't work. I have the sample blocks to prove it! So I have decided to use the leftover strips and make a strippy border. I made so many extra nine-patch blocks that I may now run out of fabric for the border. Now I will be forced to visit the quilt shop to buy more fabric. Don't you love it when that happens?
