Borders on Carolina Chain

Carolina Chain is my third quilt top finish for 2015.

012815   (1011x1024) Since Bali Star and Carolina Chain were made with the same fabrics, I wanted to use a different color in the border.  Bali Star has a brown border, so I used gray for the inner border and the same fabric as Diamond Braids for the outer border.  I like the way the gray inner border accents the gray flowers.

The next project is to machine quilt this top:

012815A   (907x1024)The pattern is Millennium from Phenomenal Fat Quarter Quilts by M’Liss Rae Hawley.  I did not record the date when this top was completed, so my best guess is somewhere between 2004 – 2008.  I think that this one has waited long enough to become a finished quilt, don’t you?
