Moving Right Along



I had time to do a little sewing today before heading out to Winnipeg. This one goes very fast. I haven't sewn all the strips together yet but they are ready to go. I think it might look better with a wider inner border. It also needs to be a bit darker in my opinion. The pattern calls for 1.5 inches on the sides and 2 inches on the top. I think that looks a bit skimpy. Some of the browns from the previous quilt might work for a wider border. I'll audition some when I get it all sewn together.

Looking awesome Joyce, and I agree with your thought that it needs a darker inner boarder... Do you not have enough of the darks to use that are in the blocks already?

This has gone together beautifully. I also agree that one of the dark browns from the blocks would make a better inner border, it would make it look really striking.

I think you're right, a darker brown would make it pop. I like the outer border. You really have put this together quickly!

I agree a dark boarder would look lovely. I can't believe how quick you are a whipping thing out. You go girl!

Yep, I agree with you and everyone else - a dark inner border. This quilt is coming along well! I don't even like pink but I sure do like this one!

Great quilt, really restful colors. I agree too, the border(s) could be more. :-)

I love this quilt. I have never been that keen on pink & brown, though I know some people love it. I think this quite the nicest example I have seen!
I agree the inner border could be wider.
