Borders are On

I started this quilt at the Middlebrook Quilting Retreat last September. I got all but the borders done. Actually the pattern did not have borders on it but I felt it needed them to finish it off. After admiring a quilt that Chookyblue had made in the same fabric (different pattern) which she had added a chocolate chenille border which I loved, I decided to do the same with my quilt.
As is so typical of me, I have had the chenille for quite some time but was procrastinating about adding the border (I have no idea why). As I was going back to Middlebrook a couple of weeks ago I decided that I had better get my act together and get those borders on so I would have something for show and tell.
So here it is with borders attached. I am really happy with how it has turned out and have today sent it off to The Quilters Coop at Cowra to have it quilted.
