Art is like a border of flowers along the course of civilization. Lincoln Steffen

I really don’t much like borders on art quilts. They always seem like an after thought not an integral part of the design. I am making a quilt designed by Cara Gulati called Radiant Suns. I took her workshop last month at our guild. I think it needs a border so I chose a nontraditional border that sort of blends with the background rather than an in your face outline around the quilt. I like it. I am calling this Radiant Sunrise. Now I have to sandwich it and do some creative machine quilting. This quilt is a donation to the Living Room, a day shelter for at risk women and children. They are having a dinner/dance and auction on February 12.
