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.

What a fun wallhanging - those fireworks in the corners just give it that extra bit of pazazz! - good luck with the quilting

Oh once the binding is on, you'll never notice. I didn't realize this one was for you. Can you try hemstitching the binding onto the front to see what it looks like? That will give you the best idea of whether or not you can live with it.

I love that purple and red. Mitred corners? Aiyeee. Looks wonderful and fun.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. It is always fun to meet someone else.
I have been toying with a red hat hanging for my sister who always wears purple & gets teased about the red hat society. I haven't been able to visualize what it should look like yet. I really like yours. It gives me ideas.
