I showed my "Desert Sunset 1" to my friend Janet and she said, "is there any way you can add a border to it?". So, although it is not the normal way I like to do things, I attached some batting strips to each side, added some additional backing fabric, put on a yellow flange, and then sewed on some black print fabric for the border. I am going to paint the border with oil paint stick just a bit to finish it. Then I will square it up and "face" the edges. I think my friend was right, it does look better this way.
