Last week Mum & I had a crafty shopping day and I purchased 2 more prints from the Arcadia collection to use in the pieced border. They were 2 prints I'd used in the main part of the quilt but in darker colourways.
I thought this darker border would look nice around the lighter middle of the quilt.
I had almost enough to cut the rectangles I required, in the end I was two rectangles short so I made 2 composite blocks and added one to each side for a bit of interest and rather than adding another fabric to the border.
I am considering adding a thin grey border around the very outside - any thoughts? I have a grey and white spot for the binding.
