I also knew that I wanted to make it a bit longer, so I planned to make the bottom borders a bit wider than the side ones.
After about an hour of going thru my fabrics and deciding that I simply DID NOT have the appropriate fabric, I made a quick trip to my local quilt shop (fortunately only 1 mile away) and, as usual, they had the perfect fabric!!!
I had a wonderful time making this simple, sweet quilt!!!!
