I continued cutting small floral squares yesterday. I also decided to try the darkest ones at the edge like a light border and then a darker one. Below is the photo from yesterday where I had them as dark/light alternating. I liked this dark border when I'm looking at the design wall but I'm not sure again when I see it in a photo. In the book they used the dark as the first row around and then the light as the last border. However the dark flowers in the book quilt aren't as dark as mine.
