A friend in IL has painted a picture that I'm turning into a quilt. I'm going to try to show each step as I put it together. The first step is the initial border, which is black satin and will ultimately be only a half inch wide. I'm auditioning greens, purples, deep golden yellows and reds for additional borders. I have no definite idea of exactly what I'm going to do, but I have some ideas to try. I'm also going to take the plunge and do an applique border on at least 2 sides. The picture itself is 14.5 x 17.
