Do you remember these blocks? I made them with some of the fabrics that I bought in NYC on my anniversary weekend in October.
I finished the quilt top last weekend at a sewing marathon with some friends. We auditioned a bunch of different fabrics for the inner and outer borders and came up with this. The inner border is a dark gray kona cotton. I don't know the name of this shade but I will when my kona color card comes. It's on backorder, waaah!
I put together the middle border using all my scraps. I am undecided on the backing. Maybe a solid kona. Maybe something else. I sure do like the red and yellow!!!
When I am stumped on a decision, I just start fiddling and goofing around. Check out this little painted wooden sofa and cat my mom gave me for my birthday. Completely silly and I love it. This little kitty is wondering when the movie will start and she wishes she had a date, lol.
See the pinwheels? They are the other source of supreme indecision. I have 45 of them and they are 9 inches finished. I plan on using a purty green kona (cactus) for sashing with some assorted cornerstones. The problem is, should I put the blocks 5 across and 9 down? I worry that this will make it too long compared to the width, but I could put on wide side borders. Or 6 across and 7 down with a few left for the back? Or some other combo? I could use some opinions, if you don't usually comment please consider weighing in on this. I'd like to quit playing with painted cats and start sewing.
