Okay...I need your advice.
The quilt top now measures about 42 x 48.
I would like it to be about 10 inches bigger...
in both length and width.
(cuz it'll shrink when I wash it, ya know)
See the X? As in 'X marks the spot'?
(this photo actually enlarges when you click on it!)
Well, that is the backing fabric.
Perhaps the binding, too.
I'm thinking I need to add another border.
Should I just add a 5 inch border of the blue floral?
That seems kinda boring.
How about a row of 2 1/2 inch blocks all the way around...
OR, half square triangles...
with a 2 1/2 inch strip of the blue floral for the outside border.
edited Saturday a.m. to add:
By jove, I think I've got it!
I'll make 2 1/2 inch strips
alternating squares of brown
with squares of cream and blue.
Then, I'll add another 2 1/2 inch brown border.
The squares will look like they're floating!
Genius, I tell you. Pure. Genius.
(do you not agree?)
