Thanks for the Input!

Here it is, Monday again, and I am posting about the Road to Oklahoma work in progress. (Refer to my posts for 27 Jan. and 4 Feb. 2013.)

DSCN3978 Thanks for your comments about borders to enlarge the quilt. . . I received the overwhelming impression that more green was needed and that Four Patches might be a good idea for the next border.

I cut nine  2 1/2″ strips of green print and nine of a tiny floral print. These were strip pieced to make Four Patches.DSCN3993

Four pieced borders were made from Four Patches stitched together. Once the borders were assembled, I discovered that the quilt was 3/4″ longer (and wider) than the pieced borders. No problem, I trimmed away of 3/8″ of the white border all around the quilt. The Four Patch or Checkerboard border now fits nicely.DSCN4002The next step is adding a 2″ blue border and a 4″ or 5″ floral outer border.

Due to your input and encouragement, my Road to Oklahoma is progressing admirably!
