RaNae instructed us to use solid fabrics for our borders and to stitch motifs inspired by our inspiration fabric. I was able to fill an entire page in my sketchbook with designs and motifs inspired by my fabric, but kept getting stuck when it was time to put them together in a cohesive design that would ultimately frame my 9 patch blocks. This is probably why I rarely add borders to any of my quilts...as I never know how best to quilt them!

Many thanks to RaNae Merrill and all the other quilters that participated in this online laboratory! This little beauty is heading out to RaNae in New York City to be photographed and hopefully included in RaNae's newest book.
