Look at those miters!

Well, I'm very pleased with the way the borders turned out on this quilt. I think the pink inner border could have been a bit narrrower, but I'm certainly not going to make any changes at this point. This quilt will hang in my 2 story entryway when I have it completed. It's wild, isn't it?

And a close-up look.

Edited to add:  I forgot to credit the pattern designer for this quilt!  The pattern is Zuzu's Petals, designed by Carrie Nelson of Miss Rosie's Quilt Co.

Also - the instructions I wound up using for the mitering were from this site.  I used the first technique.


  1. What a beautiful quilt, I love the colors...and the mitered corners!

  2. Well done! Did you sew the two borders together and then mitre them or did you sew them on separately? I love the colors you have chosen. Beautiful quilt.

  3. Looks wonderful! Great job on the mitering, and all the triangles, too!

  4. Love it! The colours are bright without being too jarring.

  5. Great quilt..love the colors...nice job on the mitered border...thanks for stopping by my blog..toni

  6. I love that quilt! The pattern is great and I am drooling over the fabrics (especially the colors!) and your mitered borders look terrific!! I have never done a mitered border, maybe one day....LOL...I can't wait to see how you decide to quilt it!

  7. I made this pattern too! Miss Rosie patterns are my favorite. I think you and I must have simillar taste! I used all purple, sage green and black fabrics that have kind of a reproduction look. My quilt looks completely different from yours--How wonderful yours is in the bright sunny colors.

  8. Love the colours - you know I'm not into orange at all normally, but I love your quilt, and an orange one I saw on the Calico Cat's blog recently really appealed to me. Maybe orange is in my future?
