I added a pieced border or background strips in various sizes to make mine a little larger
I love the way this turned out. And I love using scrappy background fabric. It may look a little odd right now with the darker background pieces here and there, but once it is quilted it will blend more and I think it gives a real visual depth to the quilt.
I used the same range of background colors for Cynthia's previous mystery, "Fractured Star" (which Tom named "Mack The Knife".
Now I need to get busy and get Dinah's Delight quilted, don't I?
