Cheryl over at Naptime Quilter is hosting
This is an opportunity to show what you are working on
and get some feed back on questions you might have.
This is my first time participating in this workshop and I am thrilled to have the chance to get some wonderful advice from all of you!
You can see how it started here.
She gave my free reign on everything!
It is a disappearing nine patch block made with all Kaffe Fassett fabrics.
It measures 59" x 72" right now, but needs to be a bit bigger.
It is a wedding present for a queen size bed.
So my dilemma is the borders.
I'm not big on borders, but I thought this quilt needed one to frame
all that delicious fabric.
So first off above, a three inch blue and 5" squares of the same fabric.
Then I added another three inch blue. Too heavy I think.
Anyway, then I tried the three inch blue strips with 3"blocks and spaced them apart.
I think it's still too heavy, but I like the idea of this. Maybe if I scaled everything down by half it wouldn't be so heavy???
This last shot is of the border at 1.5" with the 5" blocks. So far I like this, but I could really use some help here. And if you have another idea entirely, let's hear it!
I am open to anything.
Thanks again to Cheryl for putting this all together and hosting!
