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.
It looks awesome! Have you concidered doing a flange with the grey? Tutorial here - http://www.jaybirdquilts.com/2010/12/binding-flange-tutorial.html
I love this look and have done it on a couple of quilts!
Wow interesting idea.
I went with the small grey border in the end. It looks good, will take some pics and post later.
I love it Bree, well done.
