fun with borders...

When a customer sends me a quilt with borders I like to give each one a different design. 
Here are a few customer quilts:
McTavish design in the outer border, cross-hatching in the checkerboard border and a ribbon in the next two borders.

A little closer view of the ribbon border:

 Pretty feathers in the outer border, ric-rac in the inner border and all-over double bubbles in the center of the quilt:

A paisley/leaf design in the outer border, single stem & leaves in the 2nd border and long curved lines in the inner border:

loopy single feathers in the outer border and double ric-rac over 3 inner borders:

orange peel in the half-square triangle border:

pully's in the brown border:
