I began this quilt at the retreat to Canter's Cave back in early April. Click here to read about it. Then wedding preps took center stage, so it seemed only fitting that I'd work to finish the flimsies at quilt camp. I have enough blocks left over that I can use one in each corner of the borders.
Can you tell we are having great weather?? It's bright, beautiful and cool here in Ohio! I've draped the flimsies over the bench. I hope you can tell that there are 2 of them. I've arranged the blocks in such a way as to have colors running diagonally across the quilts.
I mentioned borders earlier, and that is now my concern. Originally, I thought I'd just buy some solid yardage and use leftover 9-patches in each corner. Then at quilt camp, Kay suggested piano key borders of all these pastels. I've sorta' latched onto that idea. However, just yesterday I discovered a new possibility.
Hunky Dory has to be about 4 years old by now. I've had this layer cake so long, and I have no idea what I'll ever do with it. So maybe I could cut this into piano key pieces to make a border? I have two solid pieces of yardage that could be inner borders. See what you think.
Close enough? There'd be a good bit more playfulness in the quilts with the fun colors and designs in Hunky Dory. Plus, I think a piano key border adds playfulness, as well.
I sure would be interested in your opinions.
Happy Quilting, Friends!
