Hello Everyone,

So here is a little throw back to the past for me, otherwise known as a UFO or WIP. The following quilt top I pieced as a sample for a class I was teaching at the LQS about 5 years ago.

I had purchased the lovely molitas from Carol in Panama. At the time, I was unaware she was a quilter but admired all the molas and molitas she had for sale. Admired really isn't a good word, loved is more like it. Sorry she no longer sells them. Anyway they worked out perfect as focal points in this quilt.

I purchased 4 different floral molitas in different colors and just love them equally.

I used Michael Miller Fairy Frosts to frame them up.

Trying to follow the ROYGBIV, but with lights and darks. I did the best I could. Yes, some colors are missing.

The final flower. Now for the big question.

Here is the quilt top. The problem being I don't have a border on it. All these years I have not quilted this top because I just can't decide what to do about the border. So I would love to invite you all to give me any suggestions you might have. I have thought of a small inner border of color then black. Also, black with a colorful piano keys border. But I guess I am not too sure. So I would love to hear your thoughts!

Until Next Time...
