I have put a red border around the quilt and tried mitred corners this time. They turned out better than I expected. Now I have to decide on the quilting. I am thinking of using a bright yellow or gold to punch it up a bit. It's a bit bland looking right now in spite of the bright purple and red. The only thing is with the gold I will have to be careful of my quilting because it will really show up. Then on to decorating the hats which should be a lot of fun.
My burgundy quilt is still waiting while I waffle around deciding whether to undo or not. It is not for one of the kids or grandkids so I will have to be looking at it all the time. In the end I will probably re-do it but it takes me a long time to get at undoing anything. So there it sits, staring at me. That quilt top went together so perfectly, no hassles at all. Everything just fit. But as soon as I started on the quilting part, it has been nothing but trouble. Ah well, that's all part of the fun, I guess.
