Colfax with a border…

I just HAVE to share Gretchens quilt with you…I have edited her email to me…she is entering it in a show and needs permission, so I took all of that out…This is probably the BEST thing that someone has added to one of my designs and it is made from my fabric also….I love the border…thought I’d share it with you…Enjoy this beauty!!!! Notice the piping in the binding….so nice…I hope you win Gretchen!!!LB

—–​Hello Lisa
I met you last summer at AQS in Grand Rapids. I bought your kit for Colfax County the year before but decided for my bed I wanted some borders.

so I was purchasing some additional fabric from you last summer. I finally have the quilt finished and have attached a picture.

I hope you enjoy how I added the borders.

I have fabric left and plan to make pillow shams

thank you for your time. I love your items

    It’s a gorgeous quilt! But I don’t understand why the maker needs permission to enter it in a show. I thought you only needed permission when you were selling the end product.

    Looking for the “Love” button!!!!! So gorgeous!!!!

    How to “turn the corner” on a pieced border is often challenging – Gretchen’s “solution” is perfect for this quilt! Well done!

    I Made that quilt and love it. The added borders are beautiful and ambitious. I felt the quilt was quite time consuming for me but love it. Good Job to Gretchen.
