top done

 I finished up my Modern Maples quilt top today.  It's been overcast all day and of course as soon as I got the quilt up on the fence it started to rain!  Bah!

Anyway, I added two borders which brings it to about 80x80 inches.  The thin plum border was 2.5 inches and once I got it on and put it up on the wall again I thought it was too wide.  So I cut it down to 1" and then added the cream which is 5.5".  I'm still not entirely loving the border.  I had put a picture a couple months ago on facebook and people said definitely do a border and do a dark border.  I reallllllly couldn't imagine doing a big dark border so this will have to do.
