I'm a wife and mother of three and step-mom of two. I have a master's degree in international relations. I live in Alabama, but have always wanted to move out of the south. I love the West and New England, so I travel there as often as I can.
I got the borders added to my "Pineapples in the Pumpkin Patch" quilt. I kicked around the idea of doing a pieced border with halves of the pineapple blocks (to put all the pumpkins inside a square like the center block), but ultimately I decided against it. As much as anything, I just didn't want to make that many more of those little pineapple blocks. I decide to go with a 1.5 inch border in the light green fabric and a 2 inch border in the dark green. The binding will also be the dark green fabric. I think it makes a nice frame for the little pumpkin patch. Now, as always, the big question is . . . how do I quilt it?
