Just a quick post to finish up the Box of Chocolates. Several attempts at adding borders brought me to this final warm chocolate brown around the outside. I tried it with a 2 inch inner border of the candy fabric but it it was too busy. So I ripped that out and settled on this one. I saved the 2 1/2 inch strip of the candy fabric so I can use it as a binding.
Tomorrow I'll be calling the quilter to schedule an appointment. She's booking into January now because of the Holidays so this one will be on the back burner again until next year.
It feels good to have completed an entire quilt top in just 3 days even if I did have a head start with the star blocks all done!
