I Gotta Wear Shades!

Oh yes! We have borders and they are just as bright as the rest of the String Diamonds quilt top! This quilt is so bright that I almost feel like I should warn people to shade their eyes before they look at it, but what wonderful therapy it has been to work on such a cheerful quilt with two very special color consultants!

Those top few squares remind me of the wall your dad painted in your room, looks like you can get lost right in the middle of the square. I love the way you did the border, neat ideas and with the girls - great memories.
