|Nope! Still Not Finished Yet!|
|Rainbow Sherbet Border and Hot Pink Satin Binding idea|
After rummaging through my studio for a few hours looking for the exact shade of white that I used in the quilt top, I finally found it but discovered that I didn't have a large enough piece left to cut my borders without piecing them. Drat! So I then got this idea about piecing some random lengths of bright pastel fabrics from the quilt top in the center of each white border strip, and as you can see in the photo below, that looks REALLY STUPID. Yuck!
|My Terrible Border Idea|
I started this project long before I got my EQ7 design software, and I was just kind of winging it as I went along. I made the bear paw blocks first, then I experimented with different sized sawtooth stars... Having the ability to do all of that ahead of time, before even purchasing fabric, is such a godsend. This quilt would have been finished a long time ago if I had a completely finished design figured out before I started making it!
Have a wonderful Tuesday, everyone!
I'm not being critical but sometimes I think maybe you think through the process too much and make more work for yourself LOL - I can tell you like a challenge but maybe you make it harder than it needs to be? I agree with you that the border in Kona Snow will probably satisfy you better as well not using minke so you can use your long arm and practice more. From what you had posted last time on your practice piece I thought you were really doing great work.
NO! You are not alone in that feeling...I in fact just finished one of "those" projects this weekend. It came out beautiful and I'm glad you got 'er done.
I get like that some times to, but love that quilt
This will be beautiful quilted up - I can't wait to see it! And yeah, sorry, that border idea was not your best, giggle.
