Joan and I did some fabric swap. I sent her my leftovers from the Vintage Butterflies quilt & she sent me a Noah's Ark panel and backing to make a quilt for a friend's son soon to be born. I'll use some of the backing fabric to add 3" side borders only to the front and then bind it with the tan fabric. Thanks so much, Joan!! TJ (dad) & Tony (granddad) & Marie (great-grandma) will love it! So do I !! Now for a bit of humor...

I really like the way you used the second fabric as a border...hadn't thought of that but I might have to try that with my next one -- like it a lot!

I used every bit of the fabric too. Using the tan to bind it. That would have looked great as an inner border but didn't have enough. It was left over from the Japanese woven fabric quilt. I felt the panel was long enough but not wide enough. So glad to hear you like it. I also fudged on the backing a bit by adding a small strip so when I load it, I will have enough. HA! No leftovers this time!! LOL
