Thanks everyone for the responses to last weeks post! I took everyone's feedback into consideration and came up with, an idea. I even drew it all out to scale and used colored pencils to get an idea of what it would be. I wanted a blue border, then a scrap border then another blue border. I started working on it over the weekend. Then I ended up talking to an old friend who basically said "Your quilt needs some brown, it will really tie everything together! Do it!!!!" I knew she was right that very second, and despite telling myself I wouldn't buy anymore fabric, I went out and got some brown fabric to finish up the border. It turned out to be what I think is a pretty snazzy border. It adds size and more color to the quilt. And the brown really does tie all the colors together, thanks so much Sarah, and everyone else for your wonderful suggestions.
I have fabric to work on the back, which I hope will be as jazzy as the front. I was going to work on it last night after babysitting, but babysitting for 2 hours for 2 year old twins turned into babysitting for 2 year old twins, their 6 year old sister and her 6 year old friend for 3 hours, which resulted in a very tired babysitter. Luckily next week is school vacation week so I have much less to do around the clinic, which means the quilt will definitely be worked on, if not finished. Oh yeah and maybe my Praxis book will finally come off the shelf and be cracked open...but I wouldn't count on it.
Check out all the other finishes this week !
