Update: Nana's Quilt

I managed to sew the red border on and then hummed and hawed whether to go with another white one or straight on to the blue....I chose to add the extra white.  It not only makes the quilt a bit bigger, it also separates the two bolder colours and lets the eyes 'rest' between all the colour that is in this quilt (I've read that's a good thing to do). 

I'm quite excited.  It's the biggest quilt I've ever sewn so far!  The width is 53" (with the added blue border...which I managed to forget to photograph!) and it's a bit longer than that.  I've dropped it off to be quilted, which is also exciting as it's only the second quilt I've ever had quilted professionally...both of them very special, very close to my heart.
