Here is a picture of my Quilt called "Poppies". I made it for a colour-class I was taking, where you had to buy the border fabric first, and design the body of the quilt from it. The border is so bold I just made squares of coordinating fabric, and lay them on the diagonal. Every so often I would include a square of the border/feature fabric, or, make a wonky log cabin type block to look like a poppy. I hand quilted this quilt.
