Design Wall Monday - Sunny Side Up

I have sewn together the blocks for Judy's Sunny Side Up, which she offered as a free pattern for a quilt-along on her blog. 
These blocks were such a pleasure to sew and the rows went together perfectly. I am starting to think about making this pattern again but a less scrappy version.
Now this quilt is ready for the borders. Take a deep breath...
because this quilt pattern has 5 borders! Yikes! 
To see what other quilters are working on this week, hop over to the links at Patchwork Times.

  9. I love this scrappy, Kathy! But I can see how it would be very attractive in a more controlled palette (that sounded kind of stuffy, didn't it?).
    Five borders? Yikes--but then, Judy is the border queen!!

  10. FIVE BORDERS you hate borders!! I am thinking you are going to do something with lots of pieces for at least one or two of the borders!

  11. I like your fabrics so much better than Judy's. But then I love scrappy (Has she ever done scrappy? I don't remember any.)and 19th century reproductions so I think yours is perfect. Are you sure you want to do all 5 borders? I've never seen an antique quilt with borders like that. If you want to keep it authentic-looking I'd go simplier or none at all. There, I'm giving you a great excuse to avoid most if not all of that border work!

  12. We don't call Judy L the Border Queen for nothing! I love her Borders pattern book. So many different ways to do them and not just add the BLOB-O-Border on a quilt. Have fun with them.

  15. Love the scrappy look you made, it looks so different from Judy's version. I love Judy's patterns, but I usually bale on her borders!
