Finished Berry Picking top!

I finally got the borders on my Berry BOM project. I thought and thought while it was on the design wall.....whether or not to add a pieced border to it to make it big enough to fit a bed but I finally decided to just finish it as is. Actually, I did add a little green border before the pink outer one. That was an idea from my sister, Isabel. She said the pink was nice but separating it with a small border might look better. She liked the blue in the baskets but I didn't have enough of anything blue but did have enough of the green.
Here's a close-up of the borders.
Now to check the collection of backings I have and see if I've got anything I can use. If not, I'm off for a retreat this weekend and might find something when we go to the quilt shop. :o)

Yay you! The photo (clicked and in a larger size) *still* doesn't do it justice. It is seriously a gorgeous piece of workmanship! I'm sure if you don't already have a good backing for it, you'll be able to find *some*thing if you're forced to go shopping...

Way to go Liz! I might have to copy your idea to add the skinny border too. Oh, first I have to finish my blocks. LOL
