Juniper Hollow was a free online pattern from McCall's Quilt Magazine or Quick Quilts. It needed a border.
I had an odd scrap of some dark green that I framed the quilt with and then I auditioned various beige fabrics that I had.
This backing fabric just jumped off the shelf so I had to wash it and iron it before using it. There's still enough left for a smaller quilt or to use as a border for another quilt.
It's on the frame now and I just started quilting it. The star blocks just needed some extra quilting put in them.

This is what I used for the end of the quilt. I don't always use different quilt designs for borders but in this case I did. Sometimes the hardest thing for me in quilting is deciding on how to quilt it. With this one, I just wanted to have fun.
