That moment when you are almost done with a quilt and have to decide on a border....and you get stuck. I made this quilt with a gorgeous stack of fat quarters from Island Batik's Steam Engine collection. I had a blast playing with color placement. But did it need a border?
Here is the quilt without a border.
Here is a light gray border.
And a bluey purple gray border.
I decided to skip the border and get right to quilting! I picked out the perfect shades of Aurifil to quilt my project with.
Ready to start quilting! It's layered with my favorite Hobbs 80/20 batting of course. The prints in this collection are very graphic so I decided to use them as inspiration for my quilting patterns.
I started with this gray and white fabric that looks like spiky branches. What did I quilt? Spikes of course!
For this dotted fabric I decided on large arches towards the inside blue fabric.
I hope you get to quilt today!
This is going to be so cool! Can't wait to see more!ReplyDelete
Lovely quilt, and I agree that it didn't need a separate border. As it is, it seems to kind of have a border already that bits of the blocks are "invading," if that makes sense. Anyway, I really like it the way it is and can't wait to see how you quilt it up!ReplyDelete
