I did put together a top before everyone arrived. I'm trying to decide if I should add a border or not. These are blocks that I originally made for an American Jane enormous quilt, which I abandoned. The fabrics are all kid type themes and I fussy cut many of the centers in the Ohio stars. I'm thinking of using the American Jane yardstick fabric for a border, which I had used in the center of the quilt, as a border between the stars. I'm curious about your opinions.
No border except the black one
With the American Jane yardstick fabric laid out...opinions??
So my daughter/son in law/darling grandson are here (as are my other 2 kids and husband). We HAD to get some new bath toys so I took him to the local toy store and found a duckie and fishie for the tub. But the best find was a little shopping basket, which he just couldn't put down. Here's a picture of my daughter Rachel with the darling boy, who turns 2 in about 2 weeks...Note the snow has almost melted.
I'm exceedingly grateful for my life and the people in it. Thank you for being a part of my world. I wish everyone a wonderful day at Thanksgiving and hope you are spending it surrounded with people you love. I know we are all very thankful for the wonderful lives we have. I certainly am!
Wow! I love it with the added yardstick borders! They just 'pop'! Yay!ReplyDelete
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving! Eat lots of pie!
I do like the yardstick fabric as a border--and I would probably bind it with something dark to tie in the dark inner border. This is a very fun quilt, Randy. And you have a very cute grandson!ReplyDelete
I like it with only the black border, but I'm a borderless kind of gal a lot of the time.ReplyDelete
Ryan is so sweet with his little basket!!
Happy thanksgiving friend!!
I love that yardstick fabric as the border. It really pops all the fantastic colors you used in the quilt.ReplyDelete
Love the little ahopping basket Ryan has. He is so cute.
I vote for just the black border. It looks very elegant that way! (Jealous of grandkids -- I'm still waiting!)ReplyDelete
